Well I finally finished this years presents. Thanks to all the jocks for their ideas and techniques.

There is a 13th board that needs repair do to the ”routering a juice groove learning curve”.

A special thanks to Closetguy for helping me along and answering my questions.

So far the boards are well received and the beeswax finish is a big hit!
People are using it for dry skin and are claiming it works better than lotion!

My Daughter Melissa got involved and made the graphics for the labels.

This is also my 1st crack at taking photos in this format.

Wishing all a Merry Chistmas….

Kevin

Those are some real pretty boards. I like the styles, and your mix of heartwood and sapwood, whether intentional or unintentional, makes them even more dramatic.
