My Mom and Dad have been building a new house and it’s almost complete so I made this End Grain CB for them to go in their brand new kitchen. It turned out a bit smaller than I’d hoped but since it was so thin (solely based off from what I had left of my Bubinga, Canary, and Curly Maple…. and had absolutely nothing to do with me making any “mistakes” along the way – ahem….). So I used some round over and cove bits on my router table after it was glued and I think all in all the design came out pretty nice. It’s not a dual sided CB, as the Canary wood for the base is not end grain but made for looks and to make it a bit thicker – hope they enjoy many years with it.
The table saw is my enemy at this point.. I have to spend some time building a feed table to make the deck larger, and a cross-cut sled, and I’m about to throw out the fence and make my own… So here are the pics of it on the counter soaking up it’s first guzzle of Mineral Oil
*Don’t worry I have already rehearsed how I will excuse the lines that didn’t match up exactly during glue up…. I think I’ll use that “It creates personalization and character” wink wink.
Thanks for checking it out!
