I like them all but the pine in pictures 2 & 4 really catch my eye. Very nice work, thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you for the kind words. They have both been received well from their new owners.

Using cauls, and cutting/milling the strips to the same height really cut down on the cleanup portion. The sanding
is the most tedious operation to pull off. I do it in 45 minute to hour long runs, when sanding the end grain. You
can burn out quickly if you try to do it all in one shot. I built a V-drum sander which cut about three hours off of
the sanding process.

Try a small one, and if you like it, go from there. That's how I started. I think if I had made a larger one I might
not have made that many. Food for thought.
I was talking to a woodworker yesterday and he mentioned that he had made some end grain boards. Rather than sand he tried to run them through his planer....it did not have a happy ending. The sanding is tedious but it is also the only safe way I know of to achieve the end result...beautiful boards like yours.

I agree. To me, from a safety standpoint it is not worth trying. I do not like taking chances with my body, and equipment.
Some may not agree, that's OK. We all have to live with our decisions.
Thanks Bill.
My sister texted me. Her son who is severely autistic threw her cutting board, and it cracked in two pieces.
She was devastated. I just picked it up before work tonight. It can be repaired. My glue joints held perfectly. It will take some
work, but it will work out. Always a new challenge.
