In these projects experienced some surprises resulting from using two types of hardwood and soft, when the rains began and the humidity increased significantly. But anyway is what i have. Here, I do not have much variety of woods available. The wood is very expensive.

My next step will be a board with waves.

That’s the idea, thank you for watch and comment. I appreciate your ideas and techniques, I am currently working on my version of your jigs to monetize the use of my circular jig. Thank you David.

The one with light color trim frame inside the dark border is my favorite.

The colors on each really show off good. I’m sure you are going to get compliments from the people that will be playing on them.
