Since most everyone else has showed some of theirs, Here is a couple of mine :). the first pic is the very first cutting board i ever made. It is Walnut, Maple, African Mahogany, and Beech. its 19” x19”x 1 3/4” thick end grain. The second one is a design from a wood mag and its Maple and Mahogany flat grain. third is Beech and Red Oak, which ended up looking very similar, its 19”x16”x1.5” thick end grain with a juice grove.

I think they all look great. The first one looks like it has a folded end.

These are all nice boards. I really like the leaf one as it is certainly an unusual design.

Well done.

Gorgeous wood selection on the first one, but the leaf is a fantastic design.
