had built this to give to a cajun friend of mine as a gift , him and his wife both beautiful people came to a craw fish boil at my place and he was helping with the boiling of the craw dads ,,i thought i would give em a hand and while doing so burnt up his nylon tater bag by setting it a bit to close to the fire , he was kind about it but thought this would be a good gesture, its a plan and wood i got from http://www.bellforestproducts.com/exotic-lumber-projects/paddle-cutting-board-package/ they had a special on the wood with free shipping , but did a little dressing up on it with a knife stored in a blade kerf with some 1/8 magnets , this one has many flaws and will be used as a templet but the others will be the same ,also in the next to last pic there is a big gough on the side that i did being stupid it was put there by the table saw on one of the last cuts i was standing over the saw looking at it and droped it on the saw it landed on the blade , the saw was shut off but the blade was still spinning sanded most of it out but this one now sit in view to remind me of how fast a accident could happen , so this one want be the one i give my friend but the next one ,have enought wood for four as the sale for the was buy three and get one free on the wood ,its purple heart and hard maple ,the inlay strips are not sure of the wood they were just cutt off i had ,the strips i did fron a online site Fine Woodworking a good site https://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.finewoodworking.com/how-to/video/the-coolest-cutting-board-ever.aspx&sa=U&ei=hYLvVJmMC8GgNpqxgrgB&ved=0CAUQFjAA&client=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNFyKyFte8E-kCHZ163ebUYMKR6GhA thanks for looking ,its not perfect but then it will only get better as i practice

I’ll be there eddie. I have reservations for my camper in Marty’s driveway on Friday night. Then the next three nights we will be at holiday world, which is an amusement park back west in SAnta Claus Indiana. I’m bringing my whole family. Dogs included.

That is one beautiful board and nicely crafted. Your friend is certain to like it – well done. Oh, and that’s a lot of work for a small cutting board.

Eddie—Beautiful inlaid board with a place to keep the knife safe. Way cool. You certainly didn’t have to do this, but I’m sure Nannette will appreciate it! Another reason I enjoy hanging around y’all! BTW, I had forgotten all about the net.
