Very nice Dale. I really like the ebony. I made the same ones a few years ago for my wife for Christmas. Mine turned out ok except for the juice groove on the larger one – the router slipped off of the pattern once – wife still like it though. I used cherry for the handle. Thanks for posting, keep up the good work.

Very nice job. I also made a set of these with the cherry handles. Yours are nicer. I had some tearout when I drilled the holes for the plugs which I was never able to repair to my satisfaction.

Beautiful, Dale. Are the plugs functional or decorative? Which direction does the ebony grain run and how is it secured to the maple? Is the large board the only one to have the juice groove, or are the others turned upside down? Thanks for sharing.

I did this project so I can answer. These are from December 2007 Woodsmith. I guess you would consider them functional since they do go through the handles and the accent piece at the bottom. The large one is the only one to have a juice groove.
