This is an end grain cutting board that I made for my brother’s birthday. It is mostly maple (I assume it is called spalted) and a few strips of cherry with one walnut strip in the middle. It is finished with some salad bowl finish I picked up at lowes and then a mineral oil/ wax combo. It looks pretty nice and is very functional.

Looks good but one thing you should know about spalted wood. The spalting is caused by fungus/mold growth in the wood. I have no idea if it stays there in any sort of “active” state.

That is a curious thing. The wood wasn’t punky at all so i went ahead with it. I would be interested to know if that could pose a problem in the future though. Thanks rwyoung.

The board looks very ancient and mysterious to me. It’s one of those that almost looks too nice to cut on.
