5 more completed. A lot of Mahogany and Maple in these boards.

In the first I glued the strips lengthwise this time and it wound up being 20.5” by 12”. It’s my favourite of this group.

The 2nd and 3rd are Chaotic and opposites, one mostly light and the other mostly dark.

The 4th and 5th contain a variety of woods and Ash from my mothers old dining table. They will be staying in the family.

I see you mention the last 2 stay in the family. Are you selling, or gifting with the others? Either that or chopping a lot of food.

Nice colors, nice boards.

They look great John. I love the idea using the old dining table. Mother must love them too.

Thanks Dave, I wish my mom was still around, I’d make her anything she wanted.

Thanks Jim and Andre. I agree Andre, they were a long time in getting done, just too busy!
