Stunning work, I really like these.

Hi Rob, I’ve made a bunch of end grain boards. The one detail that I hated was the juice grooves. I had a decent bit that I used to route them, but sanding them was a nightmare, requiring hours of hand sanding and missing finger tips/fingernails. How do you deal with them?

I want to use some assorted small pies to make charcuterie boards, so i am prowling posts on here for ideas and techniques. These are really nice examples, so well done and the finish looks great.

The end grain cutting board is fantastic, too.

If bob101 comes back here to see this comment, I would like to learn what finish you used not see?

So as far as the juice grooves go I just use a sharp carbide double fluted bit , and finishing I first flood with mineral oil then I use a mineral oil and bees wax finish the I make myself as a top coat , let it set a few hours and buff it up
