Hi fellow LJs, been a while since I’ve posted any pics or storys, Navy has kept me busy these past few years.
That said, I’ve had some time in my shop and thought I would try my hand at making some serving platters.
In total, I built 3, they all measure 18” Long by varying widths, not wider than 12” though.
Woods I used in the process include:
Black Walnut
Peruvian Walnut
Sapelle (Mahogany)
Simple project to build, not too much time involved either, was a fun trial.
I finished them with Howards Cutting Board Oil.
All of them have a juice groove which I cut on my new CNC Router, and on the back sides, I have mounted small rubber feet.
Enjoy the pics, looking forward to your feedback, criticism, compliments, etc

The boards look awesome! How do you like the CNC machine and do you use it often?

Those are the color combinations I think look best when used like that, lots of nice contrast.

Well done 8^)
