Who knew how fun this was?

I just finished my first end grain cutting board. I'm very pleased with the way that it came out and more importantly, Mrs Kenbo is very pleased as well. One thing I learned on this project, is that if you don't want to do a LOT of sanding, get help with your glue up so that all surfaces are even. Oh well, live and learn. The colours in this photo are a little off, due to the lighting, but you get the idea. The board measures 12" X 20" X 1 1/4" thick. I found some really nice non skid feet for the bottom that are 1 1/2" in diameter. I can't believe how much fun I had making this simple project and I thank those of you who have been making them lately and inspired me to make my own. Looks like I'll be making more of these for a few gifts.
Thanks for looking.

Lookin' good Ken. Been thinking about making one of those myself. What kind of glue is good on these ? Obviously has to be waterproof and not leave much if any glue line.

Nice Kenbo, what type of wood?

Thanks for the kind words guys. I used Titebond glue for this one and the woods are maple and walnut. I'm pretty pleased with it.

Yeah, sanding maple end grain is a total drag. Nice board. I like that it's symmetrical yet has nice variation in the sizes going across.
