Restocked my Maple supply and bought a tool for my wife’s wand turning so I made 5 Cheese Boards and 2 more rolling pins to pay for them. The one shown is more heartwood so it’s darker and wasn’t as good quality wood. I finished it with Poly. I figure that soaks into the soft spots and firms it up. The steady rest adjusts from 0.5” to 3”, worked fine.

Fine looking cheeseboard. Those should more than make up the cost of the tool. It does look dark for maple. I had the same color in some maple logs I had.

That’s Beautiful!

Nice steady rest, too. I’m just in the process of building a new one.

I only like the Wine that comes with the Cheese:) I have been stocking up on Maple, wood prices are on the verge of stupid here, actually had to use some of my collector stock pile?

Thanks Dave.
Thanks Lew. I thought about making one, but this one is small, the right size for my shop.
Thanks Andre. I bought the Maple from a local fellow, reasonable price, good for both of us.
Thanks mtnwild.

Thanks Jim. This handle is more work than the other shapes I make.
