I’m in production mode now for the first show in August. These are bread boards made from scrap. Start to finish in 2 days. These I sanded to 320 and finished with mineral oil. The extra sanding really brings out the figure in the curly maple. Love these types of projects. No right or wrong, just start gluing.

Nice boards.

Do you do anything to reinforce the end grain to long grain joints?

Nothing special. I soak the end grain with glue and let it seep in for a minute. Then I give it another shot and do the glue up. Never had a problem with them splitting and there’s not a lot of stress on that joint.

Jim, you do a great job featuring the handle area of the board. Your method really distinctive. What method do you use to cut the handle hole?

I only accentuated the handles like that because the maple was too short so I needed another wood to make it long enough. I have a template for the board that has the handle hole in it. Three 1” holes with a forstner bit then clean it up with the template and router bit. One thing that really helped is the new trim bit. It’s pricey at $150 but has two bearings so all I do is flip it over to finish and no chip out
