These are some of the boards for a new retailer I have established in Ohio. The collection includes end grain and long grain boards. One has some of each. Will wait to see how that works out in the long term because of the different expansion rates of the grains.
The first board is patterned after BritBoxmaker, Martyn’s project called newsWipe. Thanks. End grain, cherry and walnut 10×12.
I typically like a feature “strip” in each board as shown in photos 3 and 4. These board are fun to make and designs to use are everywhere to be seen; Ladies sweaters, photos, paintings, inlay banding and woodturners.
Photo 5 is the CafeWall that has been shown several times on LJ. I just had to do one.
Photo 6 shows the stands that will hold a board upright to be displayed in the kitchen. The upright board does not take up as much room as laying the board flat. Some say Wall Art. The “wood” plaques are attached to each board for wood identification and maintenance instructions.

Would you share the copy of the cards you made to go with the boards? I want to do the same thing for the boards I’m doing; would appreciate seeing your example.
