The Wood Data Base says it is totally unsuitable as an end grain board https://www.wood-database.com/honduran-mahogany/ It's much too porous. It also says it's been reported to be a sensitizer although that is only a problem for a small percentage of the population and the limited contact someone or even food has with a cutting board makes that issue unlikely to be a problem. It would probably be a better choice in something that is decorative rather than something that would see abuse.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
