I am revisiting the end grain cutting board. This time I am utilizing CB DESIGNER free downloadable software and have added a crosscut sled and thickness planer since my last attempt. This is going to be a jumbo one starting at 2IN thick. The finished thickness after the planing will be about 1-1/4IN. I am using Cherry , Black Walnut , Maple , and Pauduk. Everything was grown and harvested from Central Indiana.

Very nice. It gives me a Native American vibe. I also used the software for a few boards recently and find it very helpful. No more guessing how thick I can make the slices and still get the size I want. I’m sure you are aware, but for those that might not be, I would not try planing an end grain board like that after the glue up. I had the Delta version of that planer and the knife holders will give, the knife will bend and allow shavings under the blade. That in turn will leave a low spot in anything you plane afterwards.
