Looks very “high end”. Well done!!!!!!!!

The paduck color variation really stand out, gives it a nice rich texture. Thanks for sharing.

Great, those dark colors work well. I have looked at a lot of cutting boards,
many with dark colors that don’t look right. Seems that even with cutting boards you have to
be careful so the presentation will be just right. I know your client will be happy with these
results.
