2nd Diamond pattern end grain cutting board for another neighbor. Maple main, Walnut accent sides and diamonds. Smaller diamonds than the previous board. Ambrosia maple hand turned feet. smoothered in mineral oil cuz they all say they’re going to use them, yet I know a few just can’t bring themselves to cut on them. I sand all my boards to 400, and resand after a week or two as the wood settles and the gluelines sometimes show up between the contrasting wood. Then I cut and install the feet and finish the bottoms.

Hope you like.

Sweet boards Scott.
I love all the little bits too that make it a wonderful board.

Good for you for waiting a while and then re-sanding. I have washed boards in soap and water too, it helps raise the grain real good before the re-sand.

Great job,

Looks great, like the size of both and the idea to wait awhile between final sanding. I stop at 320 grit and raise the wood grain with a wet sponge once and sand with 320 again.
