I made this Board out of Padauk and Rock Maple I changed up the design by mixing up the sequence in the glue up, to my surprise I like this the most out of any of my boards thus far! I chose to finish this a little different than the 40 or so others I have made.
After talking with frellow LJ, Eric ( childress) whos becoming a good friend on how he finishes his boards, I figured I would try it out. I used food grade mineral oil and then a beeswax. Some customers had shown interest in wanting a board that was not real shinny. I think this turned out well although I would have liked the Paduak to be a little more red. I let it bleed back out after sanding for 3 weeks.
Instead of using a roundover bit I chose to use a 45* with my table saw for something different.
My new V drum sander sure cut down the time this end-grain board needed to worked on. Its very smooth as I took it up to 320 grit.
Thx for looking,
