This is a book-matched box elder serving board. It measures 16” x 11” x 5/8” and is finished with wax only. The leather strap ends are inserted into 2 drilled holes and secured with CA glue. This will be exhibited at the local fair next month. Thanks for the looks and comments.

That is absolutely stunning and Ihave to say it again the wood you have avalible makes me jeleous and I think I have to come down there and raid your place for some of those treasures .
Artistic craftsmanship is what I call this and it reminds me of a flower arrangement or as mentioned above a INDIAN head dress .
