Cool A few More end grain boards.

Hello again,
I just finished two more end grain boards. One is for a coworker who has recently got married, their wedding gift. The other is for the camp. It is made from pine. It was a 2 X 12 that I bought a while back to get some quarter sawn 2 X 4s. This was the middle section that was left. I put it in the attic and finished drying it out.
The nicer board is made with: Black Walnut, European Beech,
Jarrah, Mahogany, Maple, Purple Heart, White Oak, and Yellow Heart.
My little buddy is like another son to me, and I am like his second dad. He has helped me in my new role in many ways. DJ is super sharp, and one cool young man. I am very proud to call him my friend.
I will take a little break from cutting boards and make some different projects. I will post as they are finished. As always, thanks to everyone for all of the great knowledge shared here.

Those are beautiful. This is something I have thought of trying. You make it look easy.

Having a little buddy in the shop with me is perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of my woodworking. His youthful perspective on things often gives me cause to pause and reconsider..

THe cutting boards look great Ellery... well done!

Thank you all for the kind words. They are not very hard to make David. They take some time with two glue ups.
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.

Thanks Ellery, I will keep that in mind. If I try one, I will post it on the forum "if it turns out nice".
