Carved out a little shop time and cranked out another 5 boards. Started using different router bits to add a little something extra.
Mostly maple with walnut accents, there was one with some Jatoba ends and one with a center stripe of mahogany.

I like the boards! Did you use biscuits for these or just clamps?

Nooe, no biscuits here, but I could add them down the line. I have access to a festool domino tool.

These were jointed, planed, ripped on a dedicated straightline saw and glued up on a rotisserie clamp rack, sanded 60 & 80 in a 54" drum sander, edges finished with my router and then through the drum sander again 100 & 120 grit. After that, I mist em with water, raise the grain and run through 80 to 220 with wet sanding from a palm sander for the finish @ 320grit. Mineral oil & caranuba wax to finish. Might start buffing them on the next run.

Have your say...
