I’ve decided that I’d like to make some end grain cutting boards for christmas gifts (using the Wood Whisperer’s method) but before I head out to the wood store, I have two questions. Before I ask them, I must confess that I am fairly new at working with hardwoods.
1. In his videos, Marc says to use tight grained woods when making an end grain cutting board, how do I know which woods are tight and which ones aren’t?
2. I’m buying the wood this week and working on the project this week, do I need to worry about moisture content of the wood I choose?
Thanks folks. I love this board, everyone is so helpful!
