I’ve been looking at several cutting boards over the past couple of months trying to decide which one to build for my wife. I really liked the brick pattern cutting boards that others had built and figured I could learn a lot in constructing one. I had some extra maple and padauk laying around so I thought I would give it a shot. In the process I built a small crosscut sled for my tablesaw which made the construction go a lot quicker. I sanded the whole board with 220 grit sandpaper and put a 1/8” round over on all the sides. Finished it with three coats of butcher block oil. For a newbie I thought it turned out pretty well.

Welcome to LumberJocks, and welcome to the cutting board club!

Nice looking board. It looks like it’s endgrain … or is the “horizontal” mortar edge grain? How long were the pieces you used for the horizontal mortar? I’m curious how that fit into your design.
