I made 7 of these-12” x 18” and 7 small boards for an upcoming show. I tried to balance the Curly Maple with some nice contrasting woods. These are all flat grain. People are not yet ready to pay a lot more for endgrain boards.
I used a mix of mineral oil and paraffin on these. It gives a nicer look than the Salad Bowl finish I had recently tried.
Cherry and Maple; Cherry, Maple, a little Padauk, Jotoba, and Yellowheart; Walnut and Maple; and Purpleheart and Maple. The Maple really shimmers in good light. Back to the shop. I have a few more glued up and another crazy Larry Cheese Platter to cut up. Thanks for looking. Robert
