Very nice. I like the marks in the maple, definitely adds character. I just made my first end grain board and also used Jatoba, I think it has an awesome end grain pattern.

Well done.. I like the contrasting yet complimentary choice of timbers and the way the outer borders work.
Grain orientation is well executed. Keep it up.

Very nice boards indeed . You should try a lighter background to help show off the colors of your projects. Throw a white bedsheet or something similar over your furniture that your boards are resting on : ) I’d also like to see some more pictures of your Ambrosia frame that is in your other post . Have a great day !

Unusual design and I like it. Especially the curved edges. Good job!
