I had been wanting to build an end grain board for a long time but when i finished sanding these i decided they were done. No need to cut them apart.

Nice job. What type of finish did you use? Welcome to Lumberjocks.

I encourage you to watch a uTube video on making end grain boards. You have virtually endless design possibilities depending on how your first glue-up is positioned and how you roll and/or swap ends with the pieces after crosscutting the first glue-up.

Also, the end grain’s characteristic of soaking up the oil gives a richer color than face grain.

Just my opinion, but I’d never make a face grain board again.

Thanks Dale, I built these about a year ago. I personally like to mix edge grain, like these, and end grain but i will occasionally use the face grain if i like the pattern. Both cuts have unique features and if a face grain cutting board, like the one ive been using for 15 years, will hold up that long, i see no harm in using whatever cut looks best.
Barbara, thank you. I use mineral oil and pure white bees wax. Heated and mixed 6:1 mineral oil :wax
