Turning Scraps Into End Grain Cutting Boards

Turning Scraps Into End Grain Cutting Boards

A few times every year, I go through all my scrap wood and make end grain cutting boards.  I organize the wood that I want to use into groups depending on length.  I can then clean up and glue the strips together into blanks.  I make all my blanks the same width so I can mix and match to get a very random look.  What I love about this is that all the pieces that make up the cutting boards came from other projects.  The cutting boards become a reminder of all the projects that went into them.

    Can you clarify one thing. Are these cutting board both end grain and face/edge grain? Or did you use only end grain for the cutting board.
