This is about my seventh end grain board, and (I think) they keep getting better. This one is maple and walnut with oak rails. I like the heftier boards 1-1/2 to 1-3/4” thickness, though I need to route the edges from both sides with the 1” long bit I have. The tops are “plained” using the router with a sled, then sanded with a palm sander. A large round-over bit smooths the edges. The finish is mineral oil.

Nice board : ) What type of bit do you use to plane the surface with ?

I use my largest dado bit to make a series of very shallow passes.
