Sounds like you're not going to do anything with the 2nd face...

If that is the case you might want to do a small climb cut on the 2nd end grain cut as you won't have the 2nd face to clean it up. If so, do the climb cut on the corner of the 2nd end grain cut that is away from the face you will cut.

So if your board is standing up and down with the end grains at North and South and the face to be cut at West, cut North first, then West, then climb the Southeast corner, then cut South. The entire direction would be counterclockwise except for the climb cut. (assuming handheld)

If I got it wrong, then do exactly what Stick said...end grain first, long face, end grain, long face last.

What profile are you cutting and are you cutting freehand or table...?
