This is a Christmas present for my Mother and Father-in-law. Made out of curly maple from a local supplier. Not bad for just $3.50 a board foot. When I first put a finish on it, which was golden oak Danish oil, I almost had a heart attack. The color was awful, to me it was a mustard yellow color. After some suggestions from fellow LJ’s, I wiped it down 2 times with laquer thinner and after a LOT of sanding, I think it turned out decent.
A big thanks to my fellow Lumberjocks
