the first three are end grain boards of charo walnut and oak. the next two are are maple with walnut or zebrawood handles. the last made with scraps of maple, purpleheart, and some other Im not sure of.
Note to jbj’s looking for inexspensive walnut : A company in Santa Rosa CA called Cali”co harvest old walnut trees and makes blanks for gunstocks which they sell to rifle and gun manufacturers (see their website). the scraps they reject because of minor imperfections you can buy cheap. I just bought a whole pallet for $100.00. a ton of beautiful walnut. They sell their “leftovers” two days a week to the public.They have several grades and I saw fifty pallets for sale. the pices are odd sized but 2” thick. many 14 and 16 inch lengths. The endgrain boards above were made of this walnut.
