Project Information

I have made a few edge grain cutting boards over the last several years, and each keep getting better and better, however it was time for me do an end-grain. I couldn't choose a simple pattern, and had to go with one with about 20 glue-ups and lots of pieces. It was challenging but fun to do. I gave it to my nephew who is a chef so I hope he uses it a lot.
To get it flat I created router sled with a flat bottom and sides with bolts to hold the cutting board (plus sacrificial boards to help prevent chip out) in place while using a large router bit. Getting the grain to match (book match) was certainly the most difficult part. Have a few other projects planned before I attempt another one.
Dimensions are: 13 1/2" x 18 1/2×1 1/2". Wood is: Black Walnut, Cherry, Maple - three of my favorites.
