A little over a week ago I met with a group of retired shipyard workers for a monthly breakfast. One of the group had shared in the past about his once held desire to work with wood. Life’s circumstances had prevented him from doing so unfortunately. Although he had told me that he had an extensive collection of lumber in storage. 2 months ago, he asked if I'd like to have it. I of course agreed. The quantity and variety were overwhelming, including a 12/4 42" wide live edge walnut & 16/4 24" wide oak slab. With certain pieces of this bounty I fabricated my first end grain cutting board to convey my extreme appreciation and gratitude for his generosity.
