This is a somewhat long overdue project for my friend I promised to make. It’s my first pattern/design-based end grain cutting board. I followed the excellent instructions provided by McLeanVA, a fellow LJ. This is made out of hard maple and cherry. It seems to 2 pieces of Maple I got ended up having different end-grain colors, but it seems to have added a nice accent to board, so I’ll call that a win. It’s finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish as done by Marc Spagnuolo (aka The Wood Whisperer). Let me know what you think. I’m thinking of making one for myself now. lol.

Very well done my friend, there is one problem with that board, I have made a few and gave them away just like you ‘re about to do , but because they look so nice people won’t use it so they won’t get scratched. My son put’s them on top of each other and still he is affraid to damage it. but in some way that is a compliment. So, from me to you bravo.

Thanks for the compliments. @Andrek, you are right. When I showed it off to my friend, she said she would probably not use it and just store it as a d├ęcor item because it did look really good. lol. When I finally gave it to the recipient, she also said the same thing, but I told her to send me pictures of it being used, so hopefully that’ll come to pass. Then my mother saw a picture of it and she’s like, “Yeah, you need one, but it looks big.”. LOL.
