Here a few endgrain boards I’ve made.

Thanks to degoose for the tumbling block tutorial, my technique needs some work but with practice I’ll get it down.

and to

McLeanVA for the zig zag how to, you made it easy!

The zig zag board is maple and walnut, the tumbling block board is maple, cherry and walnut and the third one is hickory it has some great grain patterns.

Thanks for checking it out.

Your CB’s came out nice. The patterns are nicely done. The hickory grain really stands out.

Love the designs. They are nearly 3 dimensional. I’m curious what glue you used.

Nice work Jeff. I agree with croquetman, the tumbling block board in your pics really looks like the blocks are standing proud of a flat suface. Good looking boards…....

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

croquetman, I used Titebond II, it’s supposed to be water resistant. So far I’ve made about a dozen boards all with that glue and no failures so far.
