Live-edge cutting board, made from spalted maple and purple heart, I used General Finished salad bowl finish. It’s 15 in x 13in x 5/8 thick.

It is very nice looking. I work with Spalted Maple quite a bit. It is very soft wood, not usually used for knifes to go over it. But it is pretty.

How did you clamp the boards together? The live edge on both ends had to present a challenge.

Dan, I had to glue and clamp one side at a time using a scrap piece giving more surface to clamp.

Great spalted wood and great contrast. If you make end grain cutting boards, you not only have a better surface on which to cut, you have virtually endless design possibilities.

Here’s a butcher block table I made with spalted hickory. The planning took longer to accomplish than the cutting and gluing. I worked with a limited supply of hickory and took a lot of care in making the design come out on the table top. It sits on 3 1/2 inch square tapered legs.
