crank49, you’re thinking of torrefied wood. Most of the time “ebonizing” refers to darkening wood with iron sulfate, but some people just refer to treating lighter woods with very dark stain as “ebonizing.”

And WillAdams, the end-grain isn’t being glued. The cutting board surface is end-grain, which makes for a better cutting board because the knife cuts into the end-grain, not across the grain.

I personally wouldn’t use ebonized wood in a cutting board, as I’d worry about it leeching into the food.
