My take on the standard edge grain cutting board, size varies based on materials used. Contrasting species of wood are used including maple, jatoba, walnut and cherry. I make the typical edge grain multiple wood species cutting board. I then cut the board in two, lightly sand the cut curved edges and glue and clamp a 1/16" strip in between the two halves. After that dries, I repeat the process a second time. FDA approved food-safe glue is used. After rounding the edges and thorough sanding the board is finished with several applications of mineral oil.
