This is the first of many future cutting boards. It is end grain Maple and Padauk. It’s saturated with mineral oil and then coated with 3 coats of Beeswax/Mineral oil Combo. It’s 10” x 12” x 1 1/2”. It was a fun project.

Nice work there Tony. Was it difficult to complete the glue-up?

What did you use to level the top? Sanding, planer??

Great cutting board. Is it a gift or for your own use?

The glue wasn’t bad. Everyone thinks you glue up a ton of little squares but it’s much simpler than that as many of you know. I started out with a hand belt sander but it was taking forever being end grain and all. And I wanted it flat. I added a piece of poplar to one end of the glue-up so I could run it through the planer and the poplar takes the tear-out. Then I just cut off the poplar and sanded it down and rounded over the edges. Thanks for the comments.

I just made an endgrain cutting board too, flattening the top was difficult. I used shop built drum sander, although I had some difficulties with that, I will need to rejig the sander. So I ended up using a belt sander and then a random orbital sander for touch up/finishing. The person I gave it to was quite impressed :)

I’m itching to make an endgrain board as well so I thank you for the tip on running it through the planer : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
