Hi, I am back!

After a long summer vacation of my shop, now it gets cool enough to work there!
It has been more than 60 days since I posted the last project! Wow, time flies.

This is nothing special, nothing fancy, but what my wife needed.
I made her a small cutting board about 2.5 years ago,

(this is the photo of the day I made the previous cutting board) .
. but it now is really loose at the joint, got dirty, so I thought I should make here a new one. It’s something she used everyday, so this time I wanted to make something really simple, and useful…

Japanese Zelkova, walnut and rosewood.

Well, nothing special, but more importantly, I am back!!!

I’m sure you’re glad summer is over and you can get back to playing in the sawdust.
As usual you have done it again. Nice job.

Very nice board. I like the spline. It is definitely your style.

Thank you everybody.

Well, I like summer except the shop gets too hot and can’t drink much Sake. (Cool beer is much better in summer!)

Ah, you know some Japanese! I can’t do as you do the boards (yours are too amazing!), but simple is the theme this time. I hope this will last longer.
