This is another cutting board I made. It is also made of Maple and Oak. It was originally going to be another End Grain board but, after the glue up, I realized I had a problem.

I had put more pressure on the “topside” of the board than I did on the “bottomside” and this allowed for slight expansion between one of the slat joints. I realized that if I did the next set of rips, 90 degree slat rotations, and 180 degree slat flips, I would end up with slight gaps in between quite a few “squares”. I opted to forego that and just finish it up as a long grain style. Since this one was a lot thicker than my previous end grain, I did rout out some handles in it.

Ironically enough, this is the board that is getting used most in my kitchen so I guess it was all for the best!
