I do my best on the final glue up to keep the pieces flush by using clamps and some cauls across the top and bottom. Wrap the cauls with smooth strapping tape and they won’t stick to glue. Its tought to get it perfectly flat. I have a 10” drum sander but I dont have much luck doing the cutting boards with it probably because its too small for that? I use an oscillationg palm sander starting with 60 grit and work up to 220, plan on a couple hrs with that method, even more if you get burn marks from your table saw blade

A very nice end grain board. I use very similar methods to make mine. Sanding certainly takes the longest amount of time. I made a V-Drum sander last year. It took a couple of hours off of the sanding time.
Nice choice of woods. The offset lines really make each piece stand out.
Thanks for posting.
