My very first attempt at doing something finer than “hacking” wood. Followed our friend Marc at WoodWhisperer, and found the tuning of my tools was not quite up to the finer cuts needed. Sooo, this was a learning experience, but with all said and done, my wife is happy with it and we use it daily. Turned out better than I expected

Glad to hear that it is getting used. Seems like it is so pretty it might get exiled to hanging on the wall!

Gerry, this is a good looking cutter and you chose a nice set of woods that compliment one another well.
