They measure 2-1/2 inches thick and I put an aggressive chamfer on the edge.

Not as heavy as you would think. I wanted to build something for the folks who love to spend time in the kitchen. If you ask them they want JUMBO! Most people that I spoke to about this during r&d said they want jumbo.

Very nice, I recently finished 4 similar boards with matching bottle stoppers…...though mine are only about 1.25” thick. I much say, I really like the “heft” of yours, I might have to glue up another with thicker material.

I recently made one that’s almost 2” thick and about 14×17. The only “problem” is that it is a bit heavy to carry over to the sink, etc, so I’ve been slightly thinning more recent boards.

Not a problem for me, but smaller, or elderly people might not feel comfortable doing so.

Looks great and like them thick. Yours have pretty colors and great finish. Well done!

I think you’d enjoy end grain boards if you made just one. The designs possible far surpass what you can do with face grain.
