For any skilled woodworker, building something like a cutting board is too easy. However, when you're new to the wonderful world of woodworking, it just might be the perfect place to start.

Redditor Thats_Debatable wanted to try his hand at creating a cutting board that would make things easier (and way prettier) in the kitchen. Since this was his first time attempting such a design, he opted for an end-grain look.

In just a few easy steps, Thats_Debatable went from being a complete novice to a total pro. Wait until you see the final product in all its glory.

Thats_Debatable began with two boards — one maple and one walnut.
