These are couple of boards I made for a fundraiser at work. The first one is made of curly maple and walnut and the second is made of maple, purple heard and walnut. Both of them are 11 1/2” wide by 15” long and finished with salad bwol finish.

Thanks for looking

Glenn, these look great. The purplehear/maple reminds me of candy canes. Those would make good Christmas gifts.

Nicely done, Tthe thin bands must have taken some time to do. Do you glue up in one pass? sam

Very nice. I really like the colors. I was wondering how you routed the groove around the perimeter? I’ve tried grooves like that on jewelry box lids and other projects. Every time I do it, I think there must be a better way. sometime I make a jig. Some times I use a stop block on my router table. But, something tells me there should be a trick. Any advice would be appreciated.

Great job on the cutting boards!

The PurpleHeart board is a real eyecatcher but the figured Maple always is a winner to me : ) Great job !

I like the purple heart. Very nice work on both: I hope they served the purpose of raising funds.
