I made this end grain chopping board just in time for the wedding. It is for a very good friend’s daughter.
The wood used was: Black Walnut, Cherry, Mahogany, Maple, Padauk, and Sycamore. I think I will make
the pieces larger in the future. They seem to make a better show of the end grain. It measures 11 1/4” X
13 1/2” X 1 5/16” thick. I had fun building it. I seem to always learn something to make it easier each time
I make one.
I still have not finished my V-drum sander yet. I worked a lot of OT prior to making this. That means no shop
time. The next project is to make my SANDER! I will post it when it is done.
Thanks again for all of the great projects that everyone posts. I look forward to it every day.
People keep asking me if I sell them. I am not set up for production. Maybe one day I will make some for sale.
I just got some German Beech. I think it will make it into the next board.
It still amazes me how much the end grain pops when you start sanding it. I finished it with mineral oil until it
wicked through the bottom.
