There’s a local cabinet shop very close to us, and I stop in infrequently to chat and to check out his bin of drops. He had recently built cabinets for a client of zebrawood and he had quite a few narrow drops of 3/4” thickness. He told me to take whatever I wanted, and I did. I made this end grain cutting board for a charity raffle to benefit Water For People. The finished size is 11×13x3/4”. It is not nearly as thick as I had planned because the glue up shifted in the clamps without my noticing.

I thought about Eddie today while I was using the belt sander I bought from his estate. RIP Eddie!

Beautiful board Don! It is wonderful to use tools that remind us of friends and make us smile. Eddie was one of the best.
