Ebonizing/dyeing/staining wood is only a surface treatment. Unless you can somehow pressure-cook the dye/stain/color into the wood, I can’t imagine it being a very practical cutting board if the color is only ‘skin deep.’

Even walnut end-grain will be nearly black after a mineral oil finish. Consider this project: End grain cutting board with walnut mixed in.
