First time I have tried a chaotic board. Or an end grain board. Or a board this big. It took a tremendous amount of work, but was well worth it. Gift for my wife for Christmas. She asked for something big, and this is 22×18x2 inches thick. I have no idea where we are going to store it:)

Walnut, maple, cherry, oak, purple heart, mahogany, and some slivers of jatoba :)

Store it, who’s going to lift it? Turned real nice!

Knocked it out of the park I’d say. Nothing more satisfying than the first time you put the mineral oil on and see just how spectacular they are. Nicely done.

Thanks guys. I think it will be easier next time. Definitely didn’t glue things up in the proper order and it made it more work truing and flattening, and more stress, but absolutely thrilled with the outcome!

This looks great! I appreciate the effort you took constructing that center section 8^)

The side bevel treatment is really cool!

That is a huge cutting board, and a beautiful one! I’ll have to try the bevel sides, I like the look of it.

The deep bevels were kind of terrifying to cut. I was so scared I would ruin it, but I love them. I can slide plates and trays right under the board to transfer stuff. It’s great!

Good looking contrast between order and chaos.
