Made from Peruvian Walnut, Hard Maple, and Padauk, this board is about 17” x 12” x 1” and I used a 45 degree chamfer bit on the edges.

Oiled and eventually waxed with Walrus Oil / Walrus Wax.

I made this for my wife as a gift a couple of months ago. If memory serves this is the 3rd or 4th board that I’ve made but I think overall it’s my favorite.

Color differences between pictures are a result of lighting and my crappy camera phone.

LOL. I’m still new here and perhaps I have lingering PTSD and likely make statements like I did as a result of my time on the Woodworking sub-Reddit.

Anyways, thanks for the kind words!

Yeah, I agree. Love the colour contrast.
Great job.
Thanks for sharing.


-- 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.
