Excellent collection of boards, Larry. Particularly like the close weave and the slanted one.

TNT !! How appropriate ; )
These are more beautiful oiled, of course.
You’ve really got the weave down now.
Awesome and inspiring !

I loved the close weave variation Larry. What kind of oil are you using, and how does the customer keep it looking good?

Great job, Larry.
They are really ‘tight’ and that weave is incredible.

Thanks for posting the pre and post oil slides Larry. What a difference a finish can make. I love the skewed weave pattern. If you ever decide to take a break from cutting boards, I bet some surfers would pay well to have your designs on their boards :)

These were visually outstanding before you put the oil on them. Now they are just drop dead gorgeous. I love that magic moment when the first bit of oil is applied.

I was just thinking this morning of what an inspiration you are and how many boards by others would never have been “born” if not for you. You must be a proud papa! ;)
