I jumped on this cutting board bandwagon!! This is my 1st end-grain board. I learned quite a lot from this project. I look forward to trying my hand at some of the more exquisite/detailed designs I have seen in the future. Now I just need to convince Mama that I need that shiny new Drum Sander to help my progress. In the once a week oiling process right now (mineral oil & parrafin mix)-almost ready for it’s service life to begin!

Very cool looking! I don’t see this style very often. I think you are on to something with this look.

That is an awesome looking cutting board! I will jump on the cutting board bandwagon too one of these days. My wife and I are brand new to woodworking, and would love to give a cutting board a go at. Especially because we love to get in the kitchen and do a lot of cooking.

Very nice. Any tips for the random pattern? I have a friend that wants one in this style.

I have to admit, I am not good at random! I just cut a bunch of my scraps & pieced together groups of 3 to 4 pcs that I thought would look nice together, same after they were trimmed. I am better at uniformity & regular patterns. Don’t underestimate your wood content. When I originally started this, I thought I would have enough for 2 boards total. If you have specific ???’s shoot me a message

Nice! An ambitious first project to pick…

@ jmartel – I did a blog on this a while back if you want to see how I did it :)
