« Part 1: Initial glue up Part 2 of first end grain cutting board series Part 3: Starting the finish »

After planing, sanding, and trimming, I ended up with this.

Then, I cut equal size pieces on my cheapo table saw and it was time for a dry fit (alternating the orientation of every other piece).

To try to make the fit a little better, I “jointed” the mating surfaces trying to remove high spots. This involved clamping my plane in a workmate and sliding the piece over the blade.

Second glue up.

Finally, there was block planing and sanding. Then sanding. Mostly sanding.
