I have a request from a customer that wants a blue and white end grain cutting board for Penn State games. I figured that I would use hard maple for the white but I am stuggling on the blue. Any idea? I have seen small pen blanks that are blue stabilized maple but nothing larger.

Aniline dye. It will penetrate really well into end grain.

If I used die to tiny maple end grain blue would it still be food grade after that cutting board is sealed?

Not sure. Have you thought of dying with food coloring? Anybody experimented with that? Colorfast?
