Hey I made a similar post but I’d like to try and get more opinions. What’s the thinnest you’ve made an end grain cutting board without it splitting when getting washed? Also, do end grain cutting boards need to be thicker than edge grain boards? And why?

Thank you all

Mine is now 1 inch + a scant more after renewing the surfaces a couple of time. My wife is brutal, grabs a meat cleave now and then and goes to town. No problems with it so far. Its 11 wide and 19 long

I have made end-grain trivets down to 0.325” and cutting boards down to 0.850”. No failures.

The first group that I ran out were all just over an inch. Still holding up pretty good too.

Have your say...
