It looks like you did a fine job. I have never seen a cutting board with opposing grain patterns like this - I wonder how the glue will hold up??

Nice project!

Ditto on the cross grain glue up.
Jatoba is usually a darker reddish brown color , aka Brazilian Cherry , but it might be the lighting : )

Very nice CB design. The walnut grain is great. Just a thought, when gluing up an end grain to a side grain you should preglue the endgrain first so you get a good bond with the side grain.

Thanks don, I will have to try that, I used a ton of glue :} I think I would be better off buying some walnut instead of using the free craps I got :)
