Made with Maple, Jatoba and Walnut. about 10” x 12” and 1 1/4” thick. I round over all the edges with either a 1/8” or 1/4” round-over bit.I use Titebond III for the glue-up because its water proof and gives you a bit longer working time. I made up some cauls with packing tape that I used to keep the top and bottom surface as flat as possible and then either bar or parallel clamps of glue up.Taking the time to line things up properly can be challenging but certainly makes a difference in the appearance. I got inspired to do end grain cutting boards after watching Steve Ramsey do his on Woodworkingformeremortals.com. Finished with several applications of mineral oil and paraffin wax mix. I find that if I let the board sit foe a few days you can feel a difference in the height of the different woods. I end up doing another sanding with 220 grit and then re-coating with the oil/wax mix. I also add rubber anti-skid feet to the bottom of my boards.
