3 more end grain boards from the cutoff bin. You just never know what you are going to get until there done! The dark one is Jatoba w/ a strip of Padauk, really amazing grain. The little board produced a butterfly, kind of cool…........

Here are a few shots without the mineral oil:

Some of the parts:

Thanks for looking.

The Jatoba grain is amazing! I know how hard it is to sand. You really placed the grains together to make the CB’s stand out.

You have been a busy boy! Those are interesting and unique boards. I don’t envy all of the sanding you had to do. Thanks for posting.

Fantastic! I will keep this in mind the next time I’m looking to clean out my scrap bins.

Stunning! I agree with rowdy. I do hate endgrain sanding. Those are amazing.

Good selection of boards, I like the quartering in the bottom row of picture 7 especially.

Hi Jeff, great designs and mass production.

I do also like…. I like them all really.

Very cute the branding as well.

@rowdy & Shrub . Jeff found a extra galaxy sander which can be inspected at NASA´s offices

Hey – I apprecaiate all the comments! The sanding part is really boring – but as Fernando pointed out – in a galaxy far, far away, I found a drum sander that makes this all possible. Defineately wouldn’t consider making a Jatoba end grain board without it….

Martyn – that quartering you reference was a miserable twisted little scrap of Zebrawood. Hard to see any potential, and easily the ugliest board of the lot. Funny how you single that one out…..

Fernando – thanks as usual for the NASA references, I guess maybe space travel is in my future…....

According with recent developments in planet Earth, I might join you in such space voyage. One way ticket this time.
