This is a half size board. Made out of Jatoba and Wenge. I love the look of the Jatoba and all the differ colors.

Nice colors – good comibnation, I like it. Curious about the Wenge though, doesn’t it have an open end grain? I have some Wenge shorts laying around and wouldn’t mind adding to a board.

Jeff, yes the wenge has a open end grain, but since it is a hard wood I decided to use it in a limited amount.
