Three end grain boards that I made for my Brother, Uncle, and a very good friend. They have all helped me through out my life. This was just a small thank you to all of them. I could not find the last picture of the two boards finished in mineral oil. The woods used were: African Mahogany, Black Walnut, Cherry, European Beach, Jarrah, Maple, Osage Orange, (200 year old) Pecan, Purple Heart, Tineo, and White Oak. Not all of the boards had every combination. I finished the boards in mineral oil. They are still fun to make.
While talking with my Uncle he told me he has a brand new 13” planer, still in the box. He is giving it to me. My father gave it to him. Wow, was all that I could say! Good friends and family. I will love them forever.

It is about family. Great work; great recognition of why we do what we do!

I like the choice of wood. Definitely a fun build. Awesome pattern.

I’m a proud owner of one of these cutting boards and I have to say that pictures don’t do it justice. It’s just beautiful and to know what went into it makes me even prouder to own one. Thanks so much!
