Occasionally I make these 3D endgrain cutting boards as gifts for friends and family. Recently my daughter in law asked me if I would make some for all the members of her cheese making club down in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I said sure and then found out the club had 10 members so having already committed myself I went to work. Lot of sawing, gluing, planing, and sanding later I completed the project. Wood is maple, Purple Heart, and African Sapele and the finish is Howard Butcher Block Conditioner. To make it even more interesting I shipped them down by FedEx and the package got lost for 2 days. Everything finally worked out and the club was very pleased.
A special acknowledgement to MTM Wooodworking in Russia who does some great YouTube videos explaining how to make these boards.

Awesome 10 times. I would hope you get covered up in free cheese.

Wow! Those are some amazing looking boards. I have not attempted to make that style of end-grain cutting boards, but they are on my list.
Thank you for posting!

If you go into You Tube and type in you’ll get several how-to videos on this style and several other cutting boards. The guy does some amazing work and his videos are very well done. I’m getting ready to try the zig zag style next.
