First of all … thanks to MTM Wood for the technique … and the video...
Made from camphor laurel, tasmanian blackwood and new guinea rosewood…
Routered finger recesses for ease of lifting… small feet to keep the board off the bench… finished with hot mineral oil/beeswax mix..
Last pic straight out of the drum sander…
Thanks for looking…

The main thing is that it is original work, verry hard to duplicate!

Looks good. I saw that video and it’s on a very long list of projects I’d like to try some day. The nice thing about this design is that they are all inherently unique

That’s great work Larry. Seems like almost as much glue as wood by volume and hours and hours of work – Nice job!!
