More chopping boards

Just a few pictures of the process of making some chopping boards.

The first ones I was adamant I wanted end grain and a particular pattern. I went totally wrong and could not have both! ……. The pattern won.

The second one was end grain .

all the wood cut to size. Maple, cherry, iroko,

Timber arranged in order
glue up
planing flat both sides
cutting at an angle to make the pattern
this is the way I could have glued it if I wanted end grain!!
but I was tied to this pattern!
first coat of tung oil (5 coats with 24hours between)
final finished boards!

After a lot of abuse from @destom and @joeatkin2 bout the fact that my end grain chopping boards were not actually end grain, mk 2 boards were made …

walnut maple and cherry end grain.

in place and in use
