a few months ago where some hang out on Stumpynubbs thread ,some fellowship and lollygagging goes on . Randy and I both got a drum sander about the same time , a LJ friend Randy aka DYI http://lumberjocks.com/DIYaholic and myself had a challange by another friend Jeff aka http://lumberjocks.com/JL7 which we have taged as the board chairman as he has made some beautiful boards on who would make the first saw dust from our new drum sanders which we both got with intent on making some cutting boards and other stuff too.well Randy is a profecinall procastarator and i thought i had no worrys WRONG he built a beautiful board and i lost ,but still managed to get 2nd place not sure this is good as it was just two of us LOL,this board is from one the woodwhisper made ,pretty much stayed with his build of it .i did use a rubber mat i got from the dollor stor for it to sit on keeps it from moveing during use works pretty well and it came together great heres a link https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCAQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thewoodwhisperer.com%2Fvideos%2Fhow-to-make-a-butcher-block-cutting-board%2F&ei=K72QVNHqGMGjgwTe74GABw&usg=AFQjCNFOH_6f7XxoKhlqM8x16CCelRdlsQ&sig2=OtmL5SpZyciBgiQrHeFwow&bvm=bv.82001339,d.eXY and would like to thank David aka http://lumberjocks.com/patron for helping with the set up and use of the drum sander and frienship and http://lumberjocks.com/degooseand another master in this craft for shareing the knowlege and demisions of these wine blancer heres a link to one blog of his on the blancer http://lumberjocks.com/degoose/blog/22394 and http://lumberjocks.com/projects/13508the jig that is a must if you are going to make many of these wine blancer they are bit testy on getting the hole at that angle,i did change the jig some from the pics you will see i cut a 45 on the inside backer board for a replable sacraficial board to change out for less tear out but other that that are made with little time spent on them and one last thing end grain take a lot more sanding then long grain :),so thanks for looking ho yea cant forget Sspam http://lumberjocks.com/SPalm for the many insparational one he has made ,thanks for shareing on here it really helps

Nicely done Eddie. I think that the first end grain wine balancer I’ve seen.

That Wood Whisperer cutting board design is a good one. Always eye-catching and looks much harder to make…........by the ordinary person….(but not a all that difficult as seen by a woodworker). I have a couple of the cutting boards and a few smaller cheese boards to give as last minute presents or for weddings, etc where I may not have time to put one together. I like them. People are fascinated by naturally colored wood, like purple heart and Sapele

Wife has my first purple heart and rock maple end grain board as a show piece in the kitchen and folks cannot believe just a regular neighbor-guy (me) can make an item like that.

My reason for commenting:

I love that jig for use on the drill press. Gonna Keep that one in mind for certain.

Thanks for sharing.

I may have been the one to draw first saw dust….
But you upped the anti with the wine balancer!!!
Well done on both. Ya done yourself proud.
That is a great looking board….
even without the influence of wine!!!

The balancer is on my future build list, sooo….
I’ll need to check on the Degoose Balancer Blog.
Maybe later!!!

Nice work Eddie! And welcome to the club…..it is a little hard to believe that the “procrastinator” beat you to the first dust, but you both did some great work! And the wine balancer is a nice touch as well….....hope to see more cool things from your shop soon….. :)
