Cheese and/or bread platter. Made out of scrap box elder and shaped by the differing lengths of the scrap pieces. Measures 12” x 8” x 1/2”. The small knife is a piece of scrap cherry. This was just something to do to pass time between projects and turned out okay for scrap wood. Finished with Danish oil and wax. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Very nice! It reminds me of an artists pallet.

Beautiful!
One of these days I’m going to try working with box elder. I love the red color!

Not bad at all for filling in the time. I like the way the pieces came together.
