Here is another end grain board I’ve been tinkering with. Smaller then the last few @ 8×8”. Hard maple and Walnut.

Entirely endgrain, built a simple maple board, drilled holes, plugged, drilled the plugs etc…. Plugs are commercially bought dowels and sanded down to size where they were slightly bigger then the drill bits and soaked in boiling water where they were slightly smaller…. A few tiny seams on the front filled with thinned epoxy to prevent open areas in the finish.

The front is the only somewhat centered looking side, the bits apparently wandered a few hundreds of an inch by the time they punched the backside and therefor the back looks awful.

Next time ill only drill halfway through the board and just have 1 side with a design.

On to the next board, Finally building a board for my kitchen, lets just say its gonna be a challenge a Britboxmaker design done end grain, gonna need some CNC jigs to make it work so we’ll see!

Through hole plug in a board… I know the problems involved. Not as easy as it looks. You done good.

Half way through drilling would solve a lot, but cause you to do double work on the other side. Interesting choice on which would be faster/easier.

Keep ‘em coming,

Edit: Or just have the design on one side like you mentioned.
