This end grain board is a custom order through my web site. It is 25”x32”x1.5” and solid cherry. It weighs 28 pounds and was a handful to wrestle while finishing. I have a Jet 16/32 drum sander, and even with the open end feature, feeding something of this size and weight through it takes a lot of patience and many light passes to make sure one side doesn’t get too far ahead of the other side. My digital caliper shows 1.50167 on one end and 1.4998 on the other end. I usually don’t subscribe to the “close enough” theory, but I felt this was close enough. Any more sanding could have taken it in the wrong direction.
I only have to figure out how to package and ship it to California tomorrow.
