It seems that’s all some of us make, but here’s one I made for a friend’s upcoming birthday. She wanted something big and heavy that could stand up to lots of chopping. Walnut & Cherry, roughly 12”x15” and 1.5” thick.
Definitely funky in a couple places, but it should work well enough. This is my 5th board, and my 2nd attempt at endgrain. Is there something about endgrain that makes the glue lines stand proud? I had it all silky smooth before I applied mineral oil. After oiling, I could feel the glue lines. But I’ve only felt those lines after oiling on my endgrain boards. Is there something I’m doing wrong? Or is that just how it is? Using Titebond III.
