Here are a couple more pieces made for the upcoming craft show.
The first one is an Osage orange cutting board ( 3/4” x10” x 12” long) and fitted with a hand hole.

The second one is a small mesquite cross ( 5” long) cut with the rough sapwood out.

They are both finished with Danish oil.

Cheers, Jim

They look good especially the cutting board. I like the way you added the handle. I can see this becoming the favorite board to grab while working in the kitchen.

Both will sell very quick Jim, I have no experience with the Osage, is it a good hard timber for a cutting board ?, the shape looks great
cheers

Nice job Jim. Just a bit of concern with the Osage Orange, I thought it was toxic. Are you sure it’s food safe?.

Good Stuff Jim,
I’m sure they will sell.

Both look great Jim. I especially like the way the board stands out with the sap and heartwood. I’m hoping a friend of mine comes through with a load of Osage. You did well with the shape of that cross. It sort of grabs me.

You made a great looking cutting board with that osage orange! I really like the live edge and the handle. And, don’t take this wrong, it’s not too pretty to use!

Interesting – we always try to give some shape to those boards – but why not leave it as it is – great work and idea.
