I have decided it is time to take the time and make a router sled to fix some of the cutting board issues that I have been having. Just a few questions for those of you who use this technique on end grain: What is the best router bit to use? Once the board is flat, do you use a ROS and what grit do you typicallly start with? I am trying to get away from the belt sander that I currently use, way to many issues. thanks

I have used this bowl bit and this bottom bit in the past. I would then use 80 grit on the ROS.

I now use a drum sander.

I think you will like the router sled much more than the belt sander.

Can you post a picture or a description of the router sled you’re talking about?
