I made this cutting board for a family friend. It is my first attempt at breadboard ends. I made it out of scraps of hard maple, soft maple, cherry, walnut, zebra wood, and oak dowels. I cut the tenons and grooves for the ends on the router table, grooved a slot for your fingers on each end to make picking it up or flipping it to the clean side easier. Then finished it with 4 coats of butcher block oil. Hopefully it holds up well.

Good practice if you plan to make BB ends for a dining table or something.

Beautiful stripes on that board. I like the way you glued all together – the joint looks great!
