42” boards shaped like classic Diamond Tail and Stinger surfboards. 2 Cherry, 2 Sycamore and 1 Walnut. Epoxy with mica pigment, Epoxy inlays, Painted art and stickers then all coated with clear epoxy. Some are sanded and polished. On the Walnut one where the black epoxy meets the wood was the live/bark edge of the tree, The face of it is just under the sapwood hence the crazy figuring. Some become skateboards, Some become wall art and some become signs with either carved lettering filled with epoxy or vinyl lettering under epoxy. These were all made 6 -7 months ago before my surgery and were in various states of production. I just got around to finishing them while I’m still recovering.

These are pretty cool. They each have their own personality. Hope the recovery is going well. Later dude!

Michael – they are all nice but the walnut is the show winner. One day I’m going to try belnding multi colored resins, they are an eye catcher for sure
