My first venture into end graining. After grabbing some white oak sticks from the burn box and gluing up a small board, I decided to try the cheese slicing hardware referenced on other projects. Rather than cut the board down to the typical size, I did a plunge cut with a 1/8” router bit using a ready made groove tapering jig I also found in the burn box. (see 2nd pic) The jig probably should have been a little wider but it worked fine. I was very pleased with the hardware (for only 6 bucks) and I’m thinking about incorporating this slicing feature into a larger charcuterie board.

I have always used jig on the table saw to cut the groove at an angle. I never thought about using the router this will open up some more design possibilities for me. Thanks for sharing. Now that did end grain with one type of wood try using three or four types. Great job on your first try.
