I had a bunch of maple and walnut scraps from various projects to decided to do an end grain cutting board in a keyboard/piano design as a gift for my bro who is a composer and loves to gourmet cook. Might be a little closer to a cheese board in size, but still happy with the result.

The design was influenced from lumberjock JL7

Finish was two coats of Watco butcher block oil

Good use of cut offs. I built a similar one for my brother for Christmas after he sent me a picture of a cheese board in the shape of a grand piano. The commercial one had three little legs. After cutting the top shape I decided the use of legs might make it unstable so I left them off. Of course, my brother thought I was being lazy and even today I think he is a bit put off by my compromise but that is okay.

thx for the kind words.

tnwood, I cannot imagine trying to cut anything on a three legged platform, although presentation-wise it sound nice :)
