Matt, I can’t answer your question, but I will offer that end grain cutting boards are best made from tight grained woods, such as maple, cherry, walnut, purpleheart, etc. The reason being that open grain woods provide potential pockets for bacteria to grow. However, it seems that many/most beautiful CBs are never used and are only displayed as art work. If that is your intention, try the mahogany and iron acetate to see how it turns out. If you do, please post pix. FWIW
