If you are making end grain boards, they take a lot more work to build than edge grain boards. I make some that have an inlay and that requires a lot more time plus a CNC router. Complex 3-D patterns can take days just for the glue to dry multiple times. What I am leading up to is can you post a picture or at least description of the boards? I think you will get better answers.

I m just a simple guy making simple boards. No cnc/3d router for me here. Just a jointer, planer, saw and a sander.

Your pictures look nice. You mention stepping up your game a little. You don’t need any more equipment than you already have to create some really fancy glue-ups for cutting boards. It just takes more time and careful machining. If you do that, a much larger price is warranted.
