A Spagnuolo-Style Cutting Board

A Spagnuolo-Style Cutting Board
Well, I finally got an end grain cutting board made in the style demonstrated by The Wood Whisperer, Marc Spagnuolo. By using different types of wood cut in various widths this style creates a very pleasing pattern when completed.

I chose to use Maple and Cherry for this board. Though the contrast is more subtle than using some woods it turned out quite nice. The size of the board is 13.5″ X 11″ X 1″ and it is finished with a several coats of food-grade mineral oil and then buffed to a dull sheen.

I have no doubt that I will be making more of these since the final product has been so well received. The choice of contrasting wood varieties available gives the opportunity for each one to be different. As well, there are other changes that can be done to make them unique. For example, with this one I added Maple ends to the board to give it bit of a different look.

Here are a couple of more photos showing different views of this board:
