This is one. Of the cutting boards that prompted my “there’s gotta be a better way” flattening question about belt sanders. It was flattened with a ROS and a flat piece of hickory wrapped in sandpaper.

There are videos on YouTube about how to run end grain cutting boards through a planer. You could also set up a router flattening jig. Sanding end grain is not much fun.

Thanks! That’s nice of you to say, but it’s an optical illusion in the pic. It’s squared off. I wanted to run finger holds, but when I have tried that before the Walnut chipped out really badly.

I’ve seen those videos, but I am that guy who, with any violation of a safety protocol, has the board blow up in the planer, knocking over a lantern and burning down Chicago.

Have your say...
