More end grain cutting boards. Maple and Cherry. Finished size is roughly 12 1/2” x 14” x 1 3/8”. Surfaces sanded to 120. Oiled with mineral oil. This was an evolution for me. Did some things I didn’t put in my other cutting board projects. My son said it best. “Dad, it just shows you’ve become a better woodworker.” First, not just rectangular but arched ends. Secondly, the finger grips on the ends. I used a jig to hold the curved boards upright for the router. And lastly, I made use of my belt sander like never before. I made a dozen for this project and they were all sold well before I was done! The first two pictures show the finished/oiled boards. The second two pictures show the raw boards. The last two pictures show a couple of small boards that I made up from the scraps. Thanks for looking

Great work. Sometimes it takes someone else to point out how far we have come.
