I’ve had this beautiful slab of Eastern Black Cherry for years. Finally decided that something poignant should be engraved on it after years of not knowing what to do with the slab. For woodworkers, the wood tells you what it wants to be. This is what it finally told me. It is 12 inches tall by 33 inches wide and 2 inches thick.

Long time without posting projects, welcome. You are right about wood telling it’s wishes. I experianced it many times. By the way, it’s very true statement on this board,very nice.
