Monogram Endgrain Cutting Board
Just need to apply oil. But it is done. I used epoxy to set the "W" in the maple board. It filled the gaps adequately.
I made a all maple cutting board and a thin walnut endgrain cutting board. It was only 5/8" thick.
I used spray adhesive to affix the font I chose to the walnut. I cut it out with a band saw.
I set the W on the maple board and traced around it with a pencil. I then used a up spiral router bit to take passes getting progressively deeper until I hit 1/2" deep. I also used a 1/8" router bit to get into tighter spots. Then I chiseled to my lines.
Then I squished the W into the hole using a piston clamp and a board with waxed paper on it. The epoxy spewed out. I then used a belt sander to wast away the 1/8". The fit was not perfect, but the epoxy filled the gaps ok.
