I will let the pics tell the story…

I only had an hour in the workshop yesterday morning before having to go out…

Purple Heart and Hoop Pine 325 mm by 325 mm cutting board destined for Saudi Arabia…

Twice the glue up on one set of clamps… two blanks being glued for two more oil burners..

Cut the multi generation into an oval..

A little mineral spirits to pop the colours… This is now waiting for the Purple Heart to go back to purple… then it will be finished.

Larry, what you do in an hour would take most of us a week! Just how long are the hours in Australia????

What a multi-tasker you are! And the results are amazing. I think Ellen is right…Australian hours must be longer?!
