Wow! That is very pretty. I couldn't use it to cut meat on. Nice way to use up some "scrap" lumber.

Chris, it turned out really nice. I like the contrast in woods. The maple has outstanding grain, but the B Ebony is very interesting as well.

Thanks for posting it.

I have found much joy in working with maple. It has become one of my favorites with its versatility and numerous applications. I hear ya Gary. Only 2 things I take an expert in is eating and napping ;-)

The brazilian ebony was very interesting to work with. It is incredibly dense, has increased resistance to cross cutting, yet cuts with the grain on a table saw were smooth as cherry. It is lighter in color on the inside and on cut ends. But over time the cut ends will begin turning dark (oxidation??). I just found it quite interesting to work with. Also it is extremely heavy compared to oak or maple of the same size. I have not attempted touching it with a router bit yet. The planer had no trouble with it though.
