Everyone gets the request from the wife to make gifts for christmas… so I dug the scraps out and used some larger cutoffs I got from a woodshop. Maple, walnut and cherry with a small usage of padouk. The last photo shows some larger bread/cheese servers with one that has been oiled, another waiting to be finished and the template used to route the edges.

I love your designs – very original! Great work with the grain patterns too! I particularly like the last one with the small Padauk strips.

Thanks for the compliments people! First time making them and they came out fairly well. I used butcher block oil. Several thin coats. I think I may have oversaturated the wood, but I liked the sheen it gave it in the end.

Have your say...
