Again gifts that we gave to families (in laws). These were inspired by members here, you can search it, so I want to thank those people for the inspiration.

I only know darker wood which is walnut but I don’t really know the green and white wood that I used. I just grabbed them from my files. And yes those are the real color and never stained. So if anybody here knows what kind of wood that is almost white and green once you coat them with mineral oil. Because I know I only used mineral oil on them. I’ll appreciate the info. Thanks.

Great build!

I would guess the greenish wood may be lignum vitae? Is it really dense?

You sure do some mighty fine projects, a true craftsman to fit those pieces with the strips so flawlessly. I don’t know much about different woods as most wood I use is birch form my place.

The whute wood looks like hard maple, but due to limited resolution i cant see the grain perfectly and say for sure. I think the green wood is verawood, but again its hard to say for sure

KnotCurser: the green wood in not really dense. In fact it was on a lighter side like pine. Lignum Vitae, that’s a hard word to remember :)

bushmaster: thanks for the kind word :)

helluvawreck: thank you Charles :)

Matt1475: White wood is definitely not maple because it’s whiter than that. Verawood, I’ll try to remember that coz I really like that wood and surprised me after I coated it.

Is that a cheese cutter built into the board? Where did you get that from?
