So I agreed to build an end-grain board for a friend of a friend…..planned everything out step by step…....made first round of cuts and was so impressed with myself (all joints closed up nice and tight) that I completely forgot to “flip” every other piece to create the pattern. Sat up the next morning in bed with the “holy crap” expression on my face. I then sawed all the glue joints, flipped the correct pieces and re-glued. I like the end result, but the pattern dosen’t match what I had on paper…..gotta get my brain wrapped around that!!! Lastly, finished with 4 coats of mineral oil and added some white rubber feet to the bottom. Woods are cherry and hard maple.

Looks real nice, nobody would know if you didn’t say anything. But Karson’s right, those are the ones you never forget.

Nice CB. I have done that. Life’s lessons are good for the soul, keeps us grounded and show’s us we need to slow down and look at life passing us by and enjoy it.
