My first attempt was a mothers day gift and I decided to keep it simple. Walnut and hard maple end grain, 1.5 inches thick, finished with mineral oil.

My second board I wanted to try something a little more complicated. Walnut, hard maple, and cherry end grain. I had enough for 4 boards, I think they’ll make nice gifts. This was also finished with mineral oil

Very nice. I rather like the “simplicity” of the first one.

I like the first one better also. I thought it would look terrible when finished but I was surprised at how it turned out.
