End Grain Cutting board

This is my first attempt at an end grain cutting board. I wanted to make something that would be used daily, yet last a lifetime. This is a Christmas gift for my mother in law that I hope she will like. I started with 2" thick rough sawn hard maple and walnut. I squared this up with my planner and a planner sled. Cut the peices to length with my sliding miter saw and then cut strips with my table saw. Glued up a pattern, re-planned it flat and then cut the final strips using my table saw sled. Glued up the pattern and then sanded the thing for what felt like forever! (wish I had a drum sander) For a first end grain cutting board I think it turned out pretty good. Ohh I also carved out a branding iron out of a piece of brass, that looks pretty good too..

She will love it. Well done. I really like the fact you made your own branding iron. That is very cool.

Thank you mrpip. It was actually a lot easier than I expected. Finding the solid brass was the hard part but one of my suppliers for work came through for me. If you try it I would recommend cutting the stencil out with a xacto knife and using finger nail polish to put the logo onto the brass.
