I made a dozen end grain cutting boards a few months ago. Maple and walnut lumber, finished with mineral oil.
Thanks to my stroke sander, sanding these cutting boards from the rough stage (with glue all over it) to 150 grit takes only about 10-15 minutes each.

Good looking cutting boards, how long does it take you to make one of those? Looks time consuming

Thanks. Making the prototypes took forever, but then I streamlined the process, built jigs (I like jigs!), and decided to build 10 or 12 at the same time. That brings the labor down quite a bit.

I bought the stroke sander used a few years back. I think I paid $500 for it and I also bought some sanding belts for $250.

Really nice stuff here. You got those tolerances figured out, they look perfect.

Very cool design, wish I had the patients for doing that kind of work.
