Learned the “don’t try to plane on endgrain” the hard way. The other side is destroyed. Luckily I wasn’t standing behind it as the planer shot it out the back. Hopefully someone will learn from this. This was my first attempt at a cutting board, so I ordered that set that you can get from Woodcraft to practice with. Even though the woods don’t really match, I thought it was going to turn out okay. Wish I could start the day over. I have some purpleheart and maple waiting from me to become a good woodworker. Might be a while.
