« Part 12: Recessed handles... Part 13 of End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 series Part 14: Rub me with oil! »

It is amazing but once I started making the 2 end grain cutting boards for the class…. I got caught up in the moment and just had to make some more…

I have some really nice European Walnut, New Guinea Rosewood, Camphor Laurel and Wild Cherry…. so I ripped them down and…..
here are a few more in the rough… and some still in the clamps…

and one ready for sanding before crosscutting…

So far another eight end grain boards in the last two days… somet are smaller than the boards made for the class..and will be useful for when you don’t want to get the big board out… little jobs around the kitchen or bar…

...And I will post once sanded and oiled…

How do you like your drum sander? I’ve been looking at the 22” inch version ( as well as the oscillating version and wondering if it is really worth the cost. I see you have the 16” Jet. Are you happy with it (including the size)?
