Padauk and maple, finished with General salad bowl finish thinned 50/50 with mineral spirits then waxed with George’s club house wax.

I had a little trouble in the glue up of this one. It slipped just a bit.

I am finally ready for Christmas. There is nothing left but the crying.

Nice colors! The wax puts quite a shine on it. I like the finger recesses.

ah, so I am not the only one who slips a little with the glue ups. Thanks, I needed that. You would really have to look close to tell… you did good.

Like Sras said, looks like you routed finger holds on both edges of the end so the board could be flipped and used either way. Nicely done.
