This is a Cheese & Cracker tray, man I love the grain in this wood. It is 15.5in dia. and 2inch thick. Sanded to 400 and sprayed with clear varnish.
I’m really pee’d off because I forgot the put my name on before the finish.
The lidded box is 5 1/2 in dia. and 7 in tall. This is also sanded to 400 and then finished with Shellawax Glow.
Hope you like them and Thanks for looking.
C & C welcome.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Great looking pieces Bob. Well done.
By tomorrow, this will be a Daily Top 3.
When you do remember to put your name on, include at least the year . . . the antique dealers of the future will be very thankful when they try to value these beauties. ;)

You gotta be kidding.
You know, when someone expresses doubt that there is a God, I like to ask them to, prithee, explain Beethoven, or Bach, or Rembrandt, or Brothers Benji Reyes or Bert Flores, etc. (I could go on. You want me to go on? I could pull a dozen names off the top pf my head, right here in Jumberjocks.) Where did all that come from?, I ask. Touched by the hand of God, say I. Whether you believe it or not. (One of the names I could mention, and I won’t, claims he’s an atheist.)
Now, my brethren, I implore thee. Observe the Honorable Bob, and the gift he has been given.

Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though ‘twere his own. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Brother Bob has brought me joy, this day.

Hey Brian, yes mate, we call it Bull-oak. Not as pretty as this stuff though.

Mark, Thank you man, I am dumbfounded, but thankful.

So glad you like them.

Absolutely great Bob. I have to agree with you, every so often you turn a piece and find that perfectly even matched grain. It makes it look flawless.

sort of a left handed compliment but the grain pattern takes away from the outstanding workmanship

Cheers, Jim
