Cutting Board/ Stove Cover

I completed my cutting board to cover the stove. It is made from endgrain maple, with a inlayed Monarch butterfly.

Nice job, is it square where you can turn it 90 degrees and still work? Better view of the butterfly...

I've been thinking about something like this because we never cook inside and the extra counter space would be nice.
Did you do the inlay yourself? Beautiful for sure!!!!!!

Enjoy the journey.

I'm with Ed. Can it be turned over to cut on the other side?

Exquisite!

The underside was hollowed out to allow the board to sit as low on the counter as possible. The stove keeps it from moving during transport. The stove is not square so rotating the board was not practical while keeping clear cabinet space. The butterfly is almost 20" wide so it would not fit rotated.

My wife always says she does not want to cut on the boards "too pretty". My reply is the same, cut on it or I'll burn it. End grain cutting boards when kept oiled (mineral oil) will self heal from normal knife use. Think about a bundle of spaghetti, when cut from the end the knife spreads the pasta apart when the knife is removed they go back together.

I made the board and butterfly. Using a nine piece template set i cut both the hole and the insert pieces.
