    Dave! Thanks! There are a couple things I "rookied" on. A couple oversights I would correct, I sure do see your work in a new light. It's one of those thing I had to try.

    Oh yeah, this on is 16" X 24" X 2"
    Its a beauty.

    I've been itching to get a drum sander but I got a heat treat oven to save up for.

    If you have an access to a wide belt sander, you will be better of just renting time.

    Heat treat oven, on the other hand, is a must.

    Good end grain boards do take more work than can be imagined. When I go to shows I hear someone say "I can make on of those, cheaper" a lot.

    I can offer a couple of hints. Check the jointer for square and be careful when you pass an edge through the knives. When you spread the glue, make sure you spread it evenly and remove as much as you can leaving about 0.001" of spread glue. (Really! That is all it takes.) Watch the clamping pressure and make sure it is as even as you can make it using cawls. After clamping you should still see excess glue seep out and it should be somewhat even along the entire joint.

    Renting time on a wide belt sander is the only way to go for a small shop or a small user. I usually take 15 to 35 at a time to the shop I work with and run them through his wide belt sander. I pay $40/hr which includes an operator. When we are finished, they are dead flat and smoothed down to 120 grit. Sure makes final sanding easier.

    Well done! I'm sure the wife lady will come to like it much better than the glass one and so will the knives.
