Nice work did you flatten it with that plane in the background. If so how did it work?

I tried to flatten it with a plane, but it wasn’t working out as well as I wanted it too.. So I ran it through my planer. there have been mixed reviews about running endgrain through a planer, but I went a head and did it and everything worked out fine. removed machine marks with cabinet scraper and fine sandpaper.

thanks, Jeff

Jeff; your CB is wonderful. The finish really stands out. I to was leery of using the planer, especially after I had an End grain come out in two pieces, very scary. I bought a Wixley digital scale for planers and now I just take .005 per pass and it works out fine.
