Finished long grain maple cutting board

Had some time flattening this thing but after routing work and seasoning it, I'm happy. Now I gave it away for a holiday gift.

Is that edge grain or end grain?

My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.

The thread title said long grain, so I presume this is either face grain or edge grain.

Yes, it's edge grain. My next one will be end grain with some walnut in it.

Looks great. is that hard or "soft" maple? I have a hard time referring to it as soft, because compared to so many other woods, it is still pretty dang hard.
