Got the plans for these out of a magazine. Laminated maple and walnut together, cut ‘em to size, drilled them, routed the tops, sanded, and finished with Danish Oil. One thing I learned on this project is that routing end grain requires a very, very light tough. There’s a bit of tear out on a couple of these blocks (the ones with the chamfered tops), but I’ve strategically placed them so you can’t see my mistakes :) They feel good to the hand, and they add something a little special to an otherwise odious task.
