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.

  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?
