I need some help here For a friend of mine that wants to build end grain countertops for his kitchen.
He was wondering what thickness to cut the pieces and if he should glue them to another substrate? He was thinking of 1/4" pieces glued to plywood but I think that will just create problems with expansion and contraction of the wood.
If we make it a full 1-1/2" thick is there anything we need to do or look out for. The tops will be about 28" deep and anywhere from 3' to 8' long.
Then we need to think in terms of a finish for them.
