It depends on size, wood selection, complexity, and how broke my gun fund is.

I would like to know how you sand pieces like The Vette Barn board where the grain runs everywhere but parallel? Belt sander? Orbital?

Douglas,

The third pic from the top. What kind of wood? Ever work with purple heart wood? Is there certain kinds of wood that work better for these boards. Like if used a bunch or better for a decoration? Great craftsmanship

Quality craftsmanship

How much time do you typically spend on each one?

Progressive glue up, belt sander and random orbital sander.

That was made for Iron Chef, walnut in the center, maple, then Purple Heart. Most any hardwood works, just a matter of money and design desired.

Know the deal.
I took a commission to make 3 blades a week ago for Christmas 2020. 1 large kitchen knife, and 2 smaller knives that had to be forged from a bolt picked up by from some R.R. tracks "When I was a child." Gawd only knows what kinda steel it is.
I usually don't take orders for Christmas after September, but this covid scamdemic........

true story:

years ago, when we still lived in MD, a relative had spent a year in China on business, and part of the deal was that the company would ship back a 20 foot Conex full of whatever stuff they had bought over time there. cool, nice perk. so at some point, they acquired a supply of Burmese Teak, and we eventually ended up in my basement shop making some pieces for his boat. and there was leftovers, which they gave me! woot!

i then turned those leftovers into a small (9x9) cutting board, end grain, and gave it back to them. she looked at it, and said those famous words: "it's too nice to use"

it's teak, one of the hardest woods around, you aren't going to ruin it by using it.

it is rare that a cutting board comes out of the clamps perfectly flat on both faces. i have a scrap piece of granite countertop material (the cut out for the cook top in our kitchen) that i use to test flatness. if it rocks, i mark the high spots with chalk and then sand them down with the belt sander. test again, and repeat as needed until the face sits flat, then do the other face, same process. that way, the cutting board won't rock on your counter top when you use it. this can take anywhere from 10 minutes to a frustrating hour, and consume several sanding belts and sanding disks.

i have seen videos of others running their end grain cutting boards thru a planer or flat bed sander, but if you don't take precautions, you'll get tearout on the trailing edge, and ruin the last 1-2" of the board. and that assumes the face that is down is flat too, which is a poor assumption. my method works for me.
