These boards are both made from Maple, Purple Heart, Bloodwood pieces. I profiled the edges to try something new and I think they look fine.

I also love the Maple and PHeart combo with a little profile applied : )

I hope to make some endgrain boards as nice as yours : )

I really like the profile. Never thought about doing something like that, but it opens up a world of possibilities!!!! I seem to get in a rut and have a hard time thinking outside the box!!!!!! :-)

Really looks cool! How do you do that without blowout? I have trouble with just a round over bit and a following block.

Router burn, shees, I did these by hand. ;-)

There were many passes over the router bit at different heights with each board and a final sliver of a pass. New router bit and lots of passes. I also sanded them with a drill press sanding mop, they work great.

A sanding mop is sand paper strips about 2” by 6” long on a shaft and about 1” thick. Gets into the strange little corners and cleans then up. I made mine but you can buy them too.
