I started out making a drunken CB but after the first few cutting and glue-ups I realized I never made a CB for my wife, so I wondered what an end grain CB would look like after having made some wave cut’s on the bandsaw. Well this is it,. not what I was hopng for, but a nice CB just the same. The only place you can see the difference is looking at the end of the CB, the pieces are on an angle. I will have to rethink this method out before atempting another CB. I made this out of Black Walnut, Sugar Maple, Shedua, Macawood, Bubinga, Hickory, White Limba,
Goncalo Alves, and White Oak. The CB is 12×18 x 1-1/2.
Thanks for looking Don

That is a “nice cutting board just the same”.

What a wood collection is in there. It looks nice.
