Christmas end grain cutting boards
I just finished six cutting boards for my Father's brothers and sisters. All are end grain. The woods used are:
Afrormosia, Black Walnut, European/German Beech, Jarrah, Hard Maple, Pecan(200+ year old), Purple Heart, White Oak, and Yellow Heart.
I guess this is the style of boards that I make. All are different. I personally prefer end grain because you can see into the tree rather than just the edge. As you cut up the boards the magic unfolds.
My favorite part is applying the mineral oil. That's when it gets exciting. Everything just pops out.
I still have a few more to make, ongoing process.
Thanks to everyone for the great info and encouragement throughout the years. Merry Christmas!
