I have been working on this for several weekends. I have made several edge grain boards in the past but this is my first end grain board that I have made , successfully. It is made from Walnut , Maple , Cherry , and Paduk.

Great job on the cutting board. I especially like your clamp set up.

Wonderful color combo! Bet you’ll never make another plain ‘ol sideways board even though the edge-grain boards are about 20x as much work.

Did you run the end grain through the planer?!

cole, yes i used my planer and it worked like a champ. no horror stories. i built a sacrificial frame for the board to eliminate snipe , blowout , and kickbacks.

Very nice looking board. I am getting ready to try my first end grain board as well. I finally got a drum sander! I could never bring myself to feel safe about sending it through my planer.
