End grain cutting board with maple and walnut. I guess it is a rite of passage for a woodworker and if I am being honest, I am thrilled to have it completed!!! This is part of this year’s Christmas gifts. I started late last year and finished in March so to avoid that disaster I am starting now. This is 1 of 10. Not sure if I will get more creative or not as the boss is very happy with this one. Thanks for looking!!!

Very nice looking board. Did you cut and glue up small blocks to make the board?

Great job!

My first board is in a sanding stage. I learned a good lesson, as a result of a mistake I made during glue up, which would have made the sanding less cumbersome.

Like you, I’m considering this first board an “E-Ticket” to a long and exciting ride ahead.

nice work, I’ve always wanted to try this but never got the motivation to follow through with it in the shop. Yours looks great and might be the motivation I’m looking for, I want to be part of the club!
