Just a couple of boards I made this afternoon from the Xmas Present I got… These boards were already cut to size and dressed all round so I just cut the curved end on the first and rounded the corners on the second….
The first has a hole and the second has finger grooves under both ends.. All the edges and the edges of the holes are chamfered…al boards are one inch thick… and roughly 10 ” by 16”
Last pic is an endgrain board I made recently from some Camphor that Ken gave me as a swap for some of that good for nothing useless Purpleheart that I have so much of… LOL

Sweet beauties !!
That first board is a knockout.
I would have been drooling all over it if I was you,
but that doesn’t make a very good finish….. LOL

I also disappeared into my shop with my Christmas booty. The Queen had commented ” What about our guests” (The inlaws). They know were to find me, just follow the noise.

Larry: Those are some wonderful looking boards. The wood patterns from a glue up are nice, but, when you have some great looking wood such as that. The flat planks make a great design.

After all the fantastic patterned boards the look of this natural one is still hard to beat. Not trying to be negative, but my only worry with this type of board would be the possibility that it might warp in time.

Larry, these are some gorgeous cutters. I think that the first board is going to be the overwhelming favorite. It has some beautiful grain patterns. Camphor is such a pretty wood.

Hey Larry;

These are great looking pieces of work.

On a scale from 1 – 10, I’d give them a 14!

What were you doing in the shop on Christmas. Well, actually the thing I want to know is how were you able to be in the shop? I considered it myself, but figured I’d end up in the doghouse. Maybe you should do a blog on that!
