Originally this was going to be a trip around the world cutting board, inspired by the quilt pattern. The first glue-up (actually three first glue ups) was perfectly planned and executed. Then I screwed up the second glue-up and ended up with these three beauties. I love the pattern even though it wasn’t what I was going for.

I still think they came out awesome. As a side note, if anyone here hasn’t tied the shopsmith abrasives yet, you should. These were probably the quickest sanding jobs on end grain boards I have ever seen anyone do without using a router plane first.

Great looking cutting boards. They look a lot better than most of mine.

I was the same way. Keep pushing her. Maybe she’ll actually like it.

Nicely done. Definitely going to try shopsmith abrasives based upon your recommendation. I’ve been making a few end-grain boards recently and I’m always amazed at how fast my silica carbide sanding belts get rendered useless.

Their hook and loop paper is amazing too. It’s far superior to the Klingspor stuff I use, and I really like klingspor.

It is definitely a better quality sand paper. It literally took me about 2 minutes for each side to get it nice and even. Except for the saw dust on the belts, they look untouched.

Wonderful boards, the end grain checkerboard is hard to beat for both beauty and utility.

I’m with ‘banger2, linkie for the Shopsmith abrasives?

Very nice. I really like the small bread cutting board at your Etsy shop as well.
