Not so long ago I decided to try and make my first end grain chopping board and just never got to post it…
what an adventure that was…
Main lesson I learned was:

Thicknessers dont like to plain end grain boards and will rip them in pieces…

Luckilly I didn’t get hurt nor anyone or anything else did with the pieces that shoot out from the machine…I had one big piece left and still tried to make it so I ended up with an end grain board with a long grain frame just to make it up to required size.

Almost did the same, with my thicknesser, but was warned by fellow Ljs.

So on went a label

Now the process you used to prepare the floor boards would be of interest.

I think I’ve had that experience as well.
I got a bed sander, that works better than the planer…safer too
Nice job on the cutting board,
