hi all,
This is my first cutting board. It's endgrain, Maple and Walnut. 13.5" x 22.5". Not perfect, but i think it'll do the job, last me awhile. I'm eager to try another one. however, i may wait until i invest in a small planer. being dependent on my rickety table saw for exact thicknesses was errr...trying :dazed:. and messy. well, it was fun anyway.
here it is:

color has since gotten a bit darker & more uniform with subsequent applications of mineral oil

Very nice! I've been looking into making an endgrain cutting board...but my woodworking tooling is woefully inadequate lol.

Again, very nice work!

Looks fabulous. I've paid good money for lesser quality boards. Great job.

Looks good, and should definitely last long after you complete the urge for another board!

Nice work. I ordered one from David. Wanted to try to make one, and may attempt one in the future.

I'm with you about having the right tool for the task at hand, but also the more challenging you get more satisfaction
Great job!!!!
