I have been building Furniture and Cabinets for about 40 years now. But this is my 1st time
ever making end grain cutting boards. After all I have read about making them I was pleased
to find that I was able to plane them with my planer. I upgraded a few years ago to a Grizzly with
a Byrd insert style helical cutter head. I am due to turn the inserts to a sharp edge and that was
evident. I still ended up with almost no tearout. It does however still take a fair amount of sanding
to get them ready for sale. I also routed groves in the edge for picking them up. I used mostly scrap
I did grab a piece of Mahogany, and 1 of red oak, everything else was scrap.
Nothing real exciting, but thanks for taking the time to look and commenting.
Thanks a lot and have a blessed evening, Todd
