This is my first end grain board, about 1 1/2”x20”x24”. It’s cherry, soft maple, and hickory. I was slightly hesitant to use hickory since it’s ring porous, but I’m just using the board for fruit and veggies and it’s such a beautiful wood I couldn’t resist. I soaked the board in flax seed oil for about 4 days (off and on). I let it cure for about a week and then finished with a couple coats of beeswax. Thanks for checking it out!

It came out really beautiful, like the cool grain patterns of the mix woods. Great job!
