I made some more snack boards, this last set is Black Cherry, after coating with mineral oil, then rubbing down with beeswax, the color of the Cherry really comes out. here also is a comparison of the Maple and Cherry, this set I made the dish area 3/8” deep, I like the deeper area better than the 1/4”.

thanks for looking

Another nice set. These should be great sellers for you. Are you doing these with a hand held router, or CNC machine?

Bill, I have a Daisy Pin router from MLCS on my router table, I made a template and I use double sided tape then just follow the template. I found that a 1-1/4” bowl bit for the router does a good job of cleaning out the dish, my largest guide pin is only 1/2” so I have to make the template accordingly. I will find out tomorrow how they sell, ( if it doesn’t rain) I go to a Farmers market on Sat mornings through the summer months

Those are really nice Smitty! I love the Cherry.
Those appear to be cut from a full width board. Are you gluing 2 boards together to get that width or using wide stock?

Dennie, yes they were cut from a full width board, I ripped about an inch off of it I think I will try some laminated ones also sometime. the most I pay for FAS Cherry is $2.50 a bd ft, so it’s not like I am wasting it.

I want to thank everyone for making this the second project in a row that has made the “Top 3” I really appreciate it, it makes a fella feel good about what he is doing.

Again, Thank You.
