I am making a couple of end grain cutting boards. One for myself and the other to go in our gallery here at It's a Burl. This thread is not to sell these. I need to make something other than knife handle blocks once in a while to maintain my sanity. So for me, making these boards is therapy.
The wood I am using is end grain maple cut from the heart of a large maple stump burl that I cut about 5 years ago. One will be freeform in shape (for me) the other a large rectangle.
These are the chunks I will be working with.
So far they have just been drum sanded flat and even thickness.
