Two of the boards are made by gluing together strips of hardwood.
This one has 7 strips of alternating maple and cherry and is 10" long x 5 1/2" wide x 1" thick. :
The second board is also striped, but I chose to put a hole in it and shape the end, it's maple and some mystery wood. It is 9 1/4" x 4 3/4" x 1":
The third board is a large slab of yellow birch and is 14" long x 8" wide and more than 1" thick. I removed the bark but kept the shape of the edge where the bark was. I also attached stainless steel handles which had screws that I countersunk into the bottom of the board.
I put mineral oil on my boards, it really changes the look of the wood as you can see with this board and should be used regularly to keep your boards from drying out:
