    Awesome work! I made my son a coffee table and when it got to the gaming board, I scratched my head for ages and ended up using a similar method (pre YouTube days). Nothing to that level though. He has commitment issues and one of his ex ladies is now the proud owner of it.

    Nice board but hell the problem is no one takes care of them. Most people think they can leave that in a sink full of water or take sledges to them. I do envy the woodshop and the seemingly effortless round a bout way.

    Beautiful work sir. BUT I want to ask everyone here: Is "end grain" chef cutting boards really the best idea? From what I found out this goes back centuries to French chefs, but it was mostly about saving the knife from wear and tear. This is back in the days when metal/steel was very expensive and almost a craft in itself, so having a very good chef's knife was expensive and prestige. The "end grain" cut was softer, so saved the knife from dulling so fast, but at the expense of the open pores of the wood, where food juices and such can be trapped and grow bacteria.

    Your cavalier way towards the table saw blade makes me bet that you'll lose a digit or get a really nasty cut soon. I don't care how much experience you have, use better sense and more caution.

    Beautiful work, but four days?  Do you sell what you make?  Either you are selling them for a wad of money or you aren't clearing much when it takes that long for one board.  Not meant as criticism, just curious.

    Jeeze Louise, that is some choppin board. And WHAT video production skills! The home made Ementhal was my favourite though.. For a moment I thought you were boring a hole through the board...aaagggghh, I thought, but no, you were all over it as in every single detail. WHAT a workshop! What a craftsman/engineer/videographer! WOWEE! Thankyou sir. (Though I now feel like I’m a bad bodger!)

    Where did you purchase that branding iron? Looks like a good one.

    How much over size do you start at before you start the finish sanding?

    If I want to make a 1" thick cutting board, how thick should I make my end grain blocks?

    One of the most satisfying woodworking videos I've ever seen. The light jazz was nice too. I also have the same bandsaw.
