This is a Bulge End Grain Cutting Board that I made my wife for Christmas 2013. It is made from Walnut and Maple with 1/4” maple and walnut end grain dowels (plugs). Made the plugs from cut offs with my tapering plug cutter. The first picture is of the finished board on Christmas morning, pictures 2 and 3 prior to finish, 3 and 5 just after putting finish on and picture 6 of the finished board again. It is 16 1/8” square and 1 1/4” thick. It is finished with Salad Bowl finish diluted with mineral spirits 50/50. It is designed after Scott Smith's cutting board. I would like to thank Scott for answering questions in regards to the placement of the dowels. He was a great help.
Like the other cutting board that I made for her, she say’s she will not cut on it but rather prop it up in the kitchen to look at…..
It was fun to build.
