End grain cutting board
This is my very first cutting board. It’s been on my back burner list for a long time. I followed a simple plan from the wood whisperer. It’s ekki and maple. It was pretty easy to make. Man there is a lot of sanding involved. I borrowed a belt sander for the rough sanding. I cut a 45° finger hold into the bottom at the sides with my router. The only problem is that it’s not flat and it rocks a little. I’m looking for some screw in feet to take care of that. It’s finished with mineral oil.
I made it for a client that gave me a very generous cash Christmas gift, to which this rocking cutting board probably can’t compare, but it’s made with love so that should at least partially cover for its flaws. :-)
