You can do it either way. The strips are mostly for show, but potentially add some stability as well. We do a lot more of multi-species cutting boards because our customers like the contrasting woods, but we sell a fair number of boards that are cut from a single board as well. When we do single board cutting boards we normally use some figured stock, such as birdseye or curly maple. If you glue strips, be sure to use a waterproof and food-safe glue, such as titebond III.

Cheers,

Paul
