I made this as a birthday/early Christmas present. It is made entirely from scraps with African Mahogany strips on the outside edges that I had left over from my Roorkhee Chair build, bookmatched and quartersawn white oak from a 317 year old tree at my church that had to be cut down recently, and a strip of walnut in the middle that had formerly been an easel that was being discarded. The finish is two coats of boiled linseed oil, mineral spirits, and wipe-on poly in equal portions and a final coat of just the wipe-on poly; sanding to 220 in between coats. I also purchased some clear rubber button feet that are self-adhesive a while back that I have been very happy with on a number of small projects that were used on the bottom of this one to give some clearance between the board and the surface underneath. I purchased the pottery bowl from a local potter. I think I’ll be making another one soon as I try to get a jump start on my Christmas presents this year. Thanks for looking.

Looks really pretty.

I’d be proud to make something looking so good! :)
