Hey Larry,
That’s sweet. Glad to see some boards are still being made.
I bet it was debated on how to end the repeating 4 way match – with a 4 way on each end, or a split on each end. I think you chose wisely with the split.

Very nice Degoose. I watched your class on the subject and found it to be very well done. I have one last project on the bench (routing key holes in a display case) and Ill be working on my first end grain. I have one question for you. Do you think you can really get 170 Australian dollars for that board? (i did the conversion its about $157 US dollars) That would be outstanding if you can!

Larry,

Making end-grain boards again – fantastic!

That’s a lot of sandpaper you are using – if you only had a CNC Machine, you could possibly chuck a larger, ballnose bit and take maybe a thou or two off the entire top surface to make it perfectly smooth…......

Now where could you get a CNC from??? Hmmmmmmm…...........

;-)

Cheers!

$170 AUD, $157 USD, not too bad, hope you get it as it is well worth every penny.
