Here you see three different mahogany boards.
1st is 10×14x1&3/8 — it’s small but the grain design is one of my favorites. I’m not sure how both the ends ended up looking like this, I wasn’t trying to do this.

2nd is 12×18x1&5/8 — it’s my most recent mahogany one. I’m really bummed on the oil mark. I applied the oil and the next day, this is what I got. I have been putting coat after coat trying to get rid of this, hopefully it will mix in

3rd is 13×19x2&1/2 —I made this one for my chef friend. He actually gave me the wood for it and much more!

All three look great. Nice designs on each one. I really like the fish in the center one. I assume you used stain to give it a darker apperance.

No, no stain on cutting boards. It’s all natural finish, I actually squirted the mineral oil directly on the board, wasn’t trying to make a design. The oil stain didn’t even appear until the next day, I still haven’t gotten rid of it completely yet….looks like this board will have to be for personal use :)

wow. Beautiful patterns. Heartbreaking to have it make an unintended fish pattern. That one is my favorite, incredible work!! I’ll learn vicariously about the oiling. Thanks for your input on my project.
