school me on endgrain cutting boards
So I see a lot of posts especially in the pics section of endgrain cutting boards. and they look like it would be a fun challenge to tackle, not to mention something small for me to work on. Also these would be a great holiday gift idea for my wife, mom, and mother-in-law.
but other then the pics I know nothing about how to make one, so some questions off the top of my head are
what wood to use, typical sizes HxWxL, any make sure you do this or don't do this tips, what type of finish to use, what tools are used or must have in making of a cutting board.
Also I would be interested to konw what the typical cost of materials is for one. I know this can very depending on type of wood and size, but I am just looking for a general idea.
