End Grain Cutting Board

I finally finished my first end grain cutting board! It measures 11 1/2" x 13 1/2" and 1.75" thick. I used cherry wood to make this one. It was 14" wide, but my router ran away on me when cutting the finger slots on one side, so I cut a little bit off and tried again

Looks very nice! Is this for you or a customer (giving away, family, gift, etc.)? What did you use for a finish?

Very nice


I understand having to trim because of mistakes, I was building a "brick wall" cutting board out of walnut and ash, and while I was gluing it up the UPS driver showed up, he just walks in the shop if I am there he saw I was busy so we didn't BS much but I lost my train of thought and forgot to flip the last piece end for end so it looked messed up


I just cut the end off and nobody knows

I used mineral oil and then a mineral oil/beeswax mix. I was just making it for fun since I've never made one before. I think I'm going to give it to my brother. I gave him a new chef knife for Christmas, so this will go with it well. I already have some strips gluing up for my next design. I wish it had a glossier finish, but I guess that's not possible with a cutting board. I thought about buying a knife blank and making a handle for it, but I don't know what the quality of knife blanks are.
