We finally got the new, permanent counter tops installed on the bank of cabinets in the kitchen.
My wife loves the counters, but Quarts can be a really killer on your knives, so I decided to take a lesson from The Wood Whisperer and make a pretty end grain cutting board. I didn’t document the whole process, however I did have a little bit of trouble with my board(s) cupping after the initial glue up, so I was unable to turn the pieces after the second round of cuts to expose the end grain. All in all it turned out pretty nice anyway.
Here is the board before any finish was applied:

Three coats later, and the new board is ready for duty, and the LOML is happy, happy.
