An End Grain Board I love.

Using Birch plywood has been real fun on end grain because I get both end and edge together. They pop!

Board is 17 1/2” by 12 1/2”. (almost golden) Made from birch plywood and hard maple. The plywood is sawed at an angle to get the diamonds. Very difficult cut. Board has nice solid rubber feet and routed handles on ends.

Notice the edges. They fan out and are different on end and edges.

I tested the birch for water resistance. Put a strip under water overnight and the plywood ply’s were fine. No de-lamination.

Still do not know how the edge grain will cut, IE, hold up to a knife. My wife has commandeered this board for our kitchen, so I will know soon.

Very nice Phill! I really like this pattern. It’ll be interesting to find out how the plywood holds up. Also wondering if the plys could harbor bacteria? Great work!

Back at it again with GREAT results !!
I was surprised to read that the other diamonds are Maple…They looked like Cherry (in color) in all but one photo on my monitor.
Keep them coming : )

Love the pattern, appreciate the labour involved but I too am concerrned with the ply… and how it will stand up as a cutting surface.

@tom. You are in luck. Home depo has them . Also my hardware has them. Some are smaller, 3/4” D, but I think the 1.5 are more solid. I keep them 1” from edge so you can’t tilt board. My early boards I put them where they looked good. They would tilt.

@larry. I am going touse this one to see. It just may reguire me to sand it out more often. With my new drum sander it will only be fun.

@ dusty they are maple. If you look close the outer layer of plywood almost matches the maple color.

Very nice and adventures board and I love the design !
Instead of using plywood why not laminate material in thin layers yourself if ply wood is a issue?
The precision is awesome !

Yup , I had noticed the Maple in the second picture earlier. The contrast is different due to the angle : )
Thank you just the same.
