I made this board for a very wonderful young couple for their wedding gift after they decided which species , size , profile and corner treatments that they wanted to look at for a very , very long time : )
Some of the pictures are before applying the Mineral Oil and wax mixture. The Paduak seemed to glow like embers in the dark and also had an incredible grain pattern that I’ve never seen before . The PurpleHeart also has some nice glowing figure in it although I can’t seem to capture it with my limited photography skills . The Main wood , Tiger Maple , was supplied to me by our very own LJ , Scott of Poroskywood fame : )
Thank you , my friend…the happy couple love it !!
ps: call me a Loon , but I swear the woodgrain looks like a baby duck paddling upstream looking for its Mom in the third picture : ) Please tell me that you can see it too , or maybe I just need some new meds ! Hahahaa
-- When you arrive at my front door, please knock softly but firmly. I like soft , firm, knockers : )
