« Part 11: Grain orientation... just a little bit more.. Part 12 of End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 series Part 13: I got caught up in the moment... »

After sanding the boards, the router table was set up with a dish cutter bit and some timber clamped to the table to act as limiting stops.

The end of the boards were then passed over the bit to create the recesses…

This was done in several passes.. raising the bit after each pass.

There is a little burn mark on the ends but a lot of sanding will remove this… lol

Nah… I can live with a little burn… it will blend in ok with some oil…

As you can see I have a few more boards here… they keep multiplying…. must be something in the water…

Next post will have all these finished and oiled and looking swell…so please drop in soon…

Very good, Larry!

COOL way of getting a handle!

Why not do it on the other side too? We use both sides of our cutting boards… LOL

... maybe you were going to do that… (??) :)
