Seems everybody makes some of these at some point. I thought I’d give it a try. One is for LOML, the other for my cousin to thank her for all the baby clothes she has given us lately.

End grain, Rock maple and Purpleheart. Woodwhisperer design, but I added the juice grooves. Mineral oil finish.

Just another project under my belt. Thanks for looking.

I like the color combination. Good job. I see these on here all the time and always think they are cool. When I get some free time (if that is possible) I need to try this!

Really nice. Up here in Canada it seems impossible to find purple heat. At least in my area. I hit jackpot when I met a lady who before her divorce made guitars with her husbend. She sold all her tools and had a 10/4 by 10” wide by 4’ long piece of purple heart just laying around. Just happened to be in a wood store asking for purple heart and she overheard me. What are the chances!

RexMcKinnon – I hear ya! The only place so far within 150 KM of me so far is at Langevin & Forest in the east end of montreal. It cost me $20 for a 1X4X6 board. And that is in canadian dollars ;)

My current crisis is finding mineral oil. You would think, as it is used in almost everything, it would be readily available. It is not, as the woodwhisperer suggests, readily available at your local supermarket… at least not up here!

Thanks guys.
Fortunately, I have several good suppliers of all kinds of wood, domestic and exotic, here in Edmonton. But of coarse I pay a premium for it.

mtkate, any pharmacy should carry mineral oil. Just ask for it, it is used as a laxative.

eddy, I just used a cove bit with a 1/4” radius. For the handles, I used a dish carving bit.

Good idea, Ryan. I’ll hit the Rx spots tomorrow. Maybe I can just melt down some Xlax (LOL!!!)
