Topic tags/keywords: end grain cutting board end grain cutting board maple walnut species

Hey everyone, I’m planning an end grain cutting board from looking at other designs. There is one where it is Maple, Walnut and a some sort of brown wood.
I’m wondering if anyone knows of a species of wood that would be in between Maple and Walnut and would flow well. Any ideas?

Thanks again,
Chris

I’m not sure if i’m allowed to post a picture that isn’t mine. If not let me know and I will take it right down.
But that is the design I am thinking of going for.

But I was thinking of a black cherry, from a local supplier of exotic woods.

I say Cherry, these other guys don’t know what they are talking about.
Wait, what they said.

Bloodwood might be acceptable if you are looking for something a bit different.

Hickory would also look nice.
