This cutting board is all end grain, of Maple, Cherry, and Walnut. Treated with food grade mineral oil.
The 3D illusion boards all require at least 3 distinct colors of wood, and this has Walnut (dark), Cherry (medium), and Maple (light). There is a lot of prep work (cutting, measuring, gluing) that goes into making these boards, but it’s total fun trying to be precise. Since this is end grain, you can see how the pattern passes through the board from top to bottom. I made several of these in different sizes. this one, #5157, is a handy 8.5 x 5.75″, and is 1.25″ thick.
