A couple years ago I made one like this out of scrap. I always loved how it came out. It seems like my favorite pieces are always the ones I made by accident. I eventually sold the piece but it garnered a lot of attention at the shows so I made a couple more. Maple, Dark Walnut, Padauk and a finger groove from a cove bit. 12 3/4” so they still fit through the planer after glue up.

Sanded to 320 then four or five coats of General’s Salad Bowl Finish. I then do a buffing with George’s Club House Wax. I’ll polish with a Craftsman Mouse sander polisher. The polishing knocks down the nibs and lint that might get into the finish and also forces the wax into any scratches making for a glass smooth surface. All that’s left is to install the feet.

Very nice! I just made my first edge grain board. I had a lot of cut offs that I didn’t know what to do with.
