It’s great to see the next generation learning the skills needed for wood working. I ‘ve been enjoying wood working since I was in the 7th grade and took my first Industrial arts Class (wood Class). I am retired now and build something about every day. I have made a few cutting boards and the one you made looks great. The great thing about end-grain boards is the knife doesn’t cut up the board because the end-grain hides the knife marks. I look forward to see future post of your work.

Having made a couple like this, I know they are not as easy as one might first think. They are a labor of love that’s for sure.

Looks like you did a darn fine job.

I believe end grain cutting boards are like that of cast iron cookware. They should be proudly handed down within the family for generations. And this one especially so since it was crafted by your hand. Good work.

Have your say...
