I made this cuttingboard from purpleheart and maple. It is endgrain cut with five coats of salad bowl finish applied to it. This was the first cutting board I tried, it was a lot of fun and I have had numerous requests to build them for others.

Thanks all for the comments I appreciate it.

Woodisit, The purpleheart has beautiful grain, it was a good compliment for this board and easy to work with.

The problem with these is – they look too nice to cut on…

That is a gorgeous board and I like the wood combination as well. I can well understand why you have requests for more of these.

Really is one fantastic looking cutting board. The 2 woods really compliment each other and the finish is gorgeous. Super job.

Thank you all for your comments. My wife jumped right in and started cutting on it within 10 minutes of being put on the counter.
