Had an order for 50 steak presentation boards… only a short time to get them done before my surgery..[tomorrow now]
got only 45 done this week… but they have all been delivered and paid for…
The remaining 5 will be sent in a few weeks after I am recuperated…
Several Native Hardwoods used…
Blue Gum
Moreton Bay Ash
Iron Bark
Spotted Gum
Stringy Bark
Crow’s Ash
All are 400 mm by 280 mm and finished with Mineral Oil…
Each has a finger groove routed underneath around the edge… and a juice groove in the top…
Penultimate pic is of some of the rough blanks before being dressed to size…last one is the boards dressed and routed prior to sanding and oiling

So nice I can almost taste the steaks.
Great job Larry.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I agree with Bob. I also can almost taste the steaks….I can even hear them sizzling.

Great work Larry, very well made.

All the best with your surgery and I hope you make a very speedy recovery.
