Yes, another end grain cutting board…...

Hard Maple, Cherry, Walnut and Padauk. Kind of a tricky glue up as the two ends had to glued up as individual blocks. But the corners all matched up pretty well.

The perimeter inlay is Birdseye Maple scraps.

Thanks for looking…

Nice work Jeff.

Great looking board, Jeff.
As Randy said, you are the board craftsman!

that’s beautiful Jeff.

I guess you spent more time planning the grain direction, than cutting & gluing.

very nice design,I like it.

Maple scraps? Did you already ran out of maple? Cant believe it

Take care
