Used up a bunch of hardwood scrapes this week and made an end-grain cutting board to set next to our stove. After a bazillion cuts and glue-ups, here is what I came up with. Used hickory, walnut, maple, and cherry. Added a border using walnut with the grain direction vertical as well. Just coated w mineral oil. Measures 14×21x2.

That is a big beautiful board! The border adds a nice look to it. I’ll bet most people (non-woodworkers) have no idea how much work that was.

Yes there definitely a lot of work into something like this. And I agree most people wouldn’t know how many steps there truly are. Especially if you want it really scrambled because more scrambling means more times thru the process (riping into strips, alternating up the strips, regluing and planing again. I don’t know what a person would have to charge to actually be profitable on one but probably $200+. Just the wood and a saw blade is probably over $80 alone.
