Hi Lumberjocks, I just finished some cutting boards. The first picture is the wedding gift for some very good friends oldest son Jarred. Wow what a nice guy! The second pic is for Bill and Penny. They own a run a winery and family farm in New Jersey. I will get up there very soon. The other two smaller boards are leftover scraps of assorted woods that I could just not throw away. The collection is always adding up.
The woods used are: African Mahogany, Black Walnut, European Beech, Jarrah, Maple, Purple Heart, Red Cumaru, and White Oak. The large boards are 14 3/4”X12 1/8”x 1 5/16” tall. The smaller board is 5 1/2”X 8 5/8”X 1” tall. The little one is 3 1/2”X 6”x 1/4” tall.
As always there were a lot of fun to build. I have improved on my time to build these guys. The two biggest improvements were a planer, and my V-Drum sander. One step at a time. The wedding is Saturday, its going to be fun.
Thanks to everyone, for all the post and inspiration. This is always the first website that I open everyday. I am constantly amazed!

I like the contrasting colors of wood. Well done.

Have your say...
