If you place a large, square, hardwood board down flat, the top and bottom of the board will show the flat grain of the wood. This is also sometimes called the face grain.
The flat grain is usually the least expensive option for a butcher block project It can also be the fastest to make. It is the softest option for cutting on but can be very visually appealing since it shows the grain design in large swaths
I really like this website and its themes 100% recommended

Welcome Angel. What you said isn't necessarily true about grain orientation. I have a bunch of western white pine timbers that came from a large tree that are flat grain one way and edge grain the other. It just depends on which side is up.

Welcome to the forum, warning cutting boards can be addictive. I went thru my cutting board phase several years ago and had 5 of them glueing up at a time.They are so much fun to make. Everyone I knew got one before I ran out of people to give them to, some got more than one. I still have a few around the house, and I went out and bought a bamboo one, which i use. Most people don't use them anyway, just hang them on the wall. Good to have you on the forum.

I’ve done the same thing Herb and use a bamboo board myself - reserving the ones I made for friends. Are we that predictable?
