I have heard that walnut would not be good to use because of potential for food allergies. I do not know if that is true or not. I think the contrasting woods would be a great look for a cutting board.

I liked the wood whisperer’s video on the cutting boards. I have wondered if it would be better to build the boards with end grain instead of long grain. Most cutting boards I have seen are long grain, and they seem to last for years. The end grain method would seem to involve more work.
