Since my first board I have made six others as gifts for family members. I invested in a portable belt sander and it made things a lot easier. This one I actually sold. It has Maple, Cherry, Jatoba, Lacewood, Purple Heart, Paduck, and Zebra wood.

amazing board, the lacewood kind of gets lost though. I love the contrast that the paduak and zebrawood generate on the edge.

Looking good :-)) How long did the padauk hold that orange color?

Very nice Lou. I like the contrasting woods, especially with end grain.

Thanks for posting it.
