Thought I’d try some 2” End Grain Cutting boards with Ambrosia Maple and think I might do more of these. It’s all in how you roll the sticks before glueups. The others are: The darker 3 are from salvaged pallets from Lumber Liquidators…I can grab maybe 1 or 2 2.5×2.5×48” sticks every 2 months, so it’s slow gathering the wood for these, but the results are always spectacular. The pictures are terrible because I was in a hurry to get them up here before we head out for vacation. The last one is a mix of maple and salvaged brazilian cherry I think, again, something from the LumLiq. As always I turn unique feet for my cutting boards because I think it sets them apart and they’re more versatile in the kitchen for displaying things, which is what my wife uses them for.

Hope you like them. The Bunny one has soooo many different things that you can see in it. Some evil bunny’s some butterflies, some robotic bunnies and bunnies with chopped ears..too close to the knife I guess.

Those are some NICE boards. I really like the “evil bunny” one. You’re right, there is a lot to see in that board! Great job.

These all look really well done Scott. The evil bunny wood is quite a find, and the board is very, well….......evil.

the evil bunny might be my favorite board on this site. Like Jaykapur said, there’s a lot to sit and admire in that one board.

If you were chopping carrots or lettuce on that and went to the fridge, they’d be gone by the time you got back.

Great stuff. Really well laid out, and Konquest stole my Donnie Darko reference.

Thanks to all for the great comments. I’m going to have to look Donnie Darko up. The ambrosia maple seems to be the most bang for the buck when it comes to 8/4 boards, and after seeing the results of this one, I’m going to do it again for sure. Cherry is running 9.80 and Walnut about 10.50 a board foot for the 8/4, while the Ambrosia maple is running about 4.60 at my current source in Columbia, SC. Been trying to find someone local, milling their own stock, who is close enough that I can go pick out my own boards, but so far have come up with nothing If anyone knows of anyone within 50 or so miles, please let me know. By the way, the back of the board has just as many different characters/shapes as the front.
