Seeing a number of exceptional boards here got me motivated to give it a whirl and I am quite pleased with my first two end grain boards. These were made with walnut, cherry, and maple. If your wondering about the “triple cut” this was the result of the initial mistake of making the boards with matching formations so after the first glue up I went through and cut each line in a random pattern before continuing on. This resulted in an enjoyable pattern but certainly a trickier glue up.

The small board measures 12” by 14” and the larger measures 16” by 18” both are just under 1.5” thick. Sanded to 320 burning out my old B&D RO410 orbital which turns out is a good thing as I purchased a new DeWALT D26453K to finish the job and had no idea on what I was missing out on! No more fighting bounce and getting covered with dust… Sanded smoothly and hardly a spec on the bench or in my lungs… Love it!

A special thanks needs to be extended to Doug White of Doug White Hardwoods who allowed me to utilize his planer without whom I would no doubt still be sanding away…

Had a good time making these boards and will soon have to try my hand at a 3D board. Thanks for looking…
