1st pic- cherry, purpleheart and walnut
2nd pic – cherry, maple, and purpleheart
3rd pic – cherry, maple, ash, and purpleheart
4th pic – cherry, maple, and ash
5th pic.. bread board are cherry and maple

All are finished with simple mineral oil.

I guess iIwould vote you in. That 4th one is questionable. How can you cut on that uneven surface!!! Nice job on all of them. I really like the grain on the 3rd on, but all are nice.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

They look great! I have a brand new appreciation for the work that goes into these. I’m in the middle of my first cutting board and I don’t have a belt sander, just an orbital, and it’s taking me a while to do the sanding.

I have a love/hate relationship with End Grain now; haha… oh well I’m sure it’ll be worth it when it’s finished. I can’t wait to join this club too.

Great job on your choice of wood and designs.

You could be the president of the cutting board club! Great work. I love the wood selections you’ve chosen. I think the first one is my favorite.

Nicely done, you will find that you can never have enough of them laying around every friend, family member and neighbor will want one. I have given away 25 in the last year. I have noticed the smaller ones, less than 12×12 go the fastest.
