Today, I did final smoothing on the 4 ends of two pieces of 3 1/2” x 2 1/2” cherry end grain, using the L-N Bevel Up Smoother, which is a large format block plane. It worked awesome making the end grain pop. It was too big for a shooting board. The cherry will be exposed on each end of a kitchen island. I usually work on much smaller pieces with a L-N low angle block plane with adjustable mouth. It also works great on end grain. For my shooting board, I use a 5 1/2 bevel down because of its heavy mass makes for easier push. I have to try the bevel up when I get a chance.
