Turning Scraps Into End Grain Cutting Boards

A few times every year, I go through all my scrap wood and make end grain cutting boards.  I organize the wood that I want to use into groups depending on length.  I can then clean up and glue the strips together into blanks.  I make all my blanks the same width so I can mix and match to get a very random look.  What I love about this is that all the pieces that make up the cutting boards came from other projects.  The cutting boards become a reminder of all the projects that went into them.

To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material

  1. What kind of carving gouge did you use when cleaning up the finger recess? Would you suggest a set or a single gouge to start with?
