Simple clean lines on this extra thick board. This board is made from maple, purple heart and walnut. All wood grain is vertical to make the board fully end grain which makes the board about 3 times harder than face grain. The maple is constructed in a chaotic random pattern (process of cutting, dicing up, and re-gluing 4 times). The inner border is of purple heart, followed w more chaotic maple, then a 1” outside walnut border. This is a larger board and extra thick. Routed in handles. Sanded thru drum sander 120, then orbital sander 120/220/320. Coated with mineral oil and beeswax mixture. I’ll add rubber feet w stainless steel screws after a day of oil drying.

Measures 15×20x2.5”

That’s a serious amount of glue-ups!

Beautiful design and exacting work, too nice to even think about using 8^)

This cutting board is GRAND!
I love it. Great work. I agree with Splintergroup. Just hang it on the wall and call it ART.

Very nice work on the EGCB, Gus! How much does that sucker weigh?

Impressive, with dedication, lots of dedication. That IS a lot of glue up.
