Endgrain cutting boards are supposed to be easier on your knives than long grain cutting boards because the wood fibers open up and close as the knife passes through. The cutting board we’ll be making is made from soft maple and measures 10.5” x 17” inches. It has some rubber feet and a hamburger inlay that I designed carved out on my X-Carve and filled in with a food safe epoxy. The finish I chose leaves a film on top. If you’re looking for more of a natural finish you could mix up some mineral oil and paraffin wax. Although that type of finish needs to be reapplied more often than this salad bowl finish. In an upcoming video I’m going to make another engrain cutting board but but use a contrasting wood as the inlay instead of epoxy.
