We've had a flurry of these just lately . . . Making an end grain cutting board has been on my to-do list for so long I thought it might have to be moved to the Bucket List . This one is just a plain checkerboard. I wanted to be sure my method was worked out; straight lines, tight seams, matching corners and all that. Like a lot of things, taking a simpler approach gave me better results than obsessing over every step.
Now I can try some more interesting patterns. I fell so flat last Christmas that I am really wanting to get a jump on it this year. Trivets will also be on the menu.
P.s. Dad, don't show this to mom .
