Default adding a juice groove to a cutting board

I'm considering adding a juice groove to a new end grain cutting board and would appreciate comments on the following:

1) The board is a checkerboard design with maple, cherry, walnut and oak pieces each with a surface area of about 1" x 2". Should I be concerned about blow out as the bit passes across these pieces?

2) Is there a recommended bit and depth?

3) The overall dimensions are 14 x16". On that basis how far in from the edges would you place the groove?

Thanks in advance.

1... no...
2... ½~¾''...
3.. bowl or ball bit..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

What he said.

I would do a 1/2" ball nose, 3/4" from the edge. Note you're losing 2-1/2" of work space in each direction with this process.

Relieve the edges of the groove with your sander, and you're done!

@rrrun

Appreciate the added suggestion.

Based on the layout of the board and approx. 1' x 2" dimension of each piece that grove should work very well. I'll post the finished photos later.

This HDPE cutting board is 12" x 16" and I used a 3/4" ball nose bit cutting at 1/4" depth.
