Had to try out the new miter gauge and came up with three cutting boards. Two being end grain tumbling block made of cherry, maple & walnut, also one has a rosewood and birds eye maple frame. The bread board made from left over lamination of prior boards, purple heart, walnut and curly maple.The finish is Watco’s butcher block oil, just wipe on with cheese cloth. These small project will save me some money come gift giving time which intern brings more tools for the shop not a bad trade off. Thanks for viewing…BC

I was always told that the whole reason for projects is to buy more tools.
Now you say that the tools bring new projects.
Sounds like a double win to me.
Yea! Tools!

Great boards blackdherry! I like them all – but, like Kristoffer, I find the more subtle 3-D of pics 4 and 5 especially attractive.
