A trio of simple boards for my friends and family.
The smaller ones are 12” x 12” x 1.75”, and the bigger one is 12” x 18” x 1.75”.
They’re made from maple, cherry, walnut, and bloodwood.
I’m considering rounding the edges, but I don’t know how I feel about that; the straight edges feel more modern, but the rounds feel much classier.
Side note: man… bloodwood smells TERRIBLE when you’re working it… it looks great, and finishes beautiful… but it smelled so unpleasant I’m not sure I want to work with it anymore.
Update: In the end, I tried the chamfers, but it just didn’t do it for me… so I ended up with 1/4” rounds on the edges. They looked excellent, and felt wonderful (after finishing them down to 600 grit sand paper… like the rest of the board). I wanted to post pictures, but they were snatched up so quickly I didn’t have the time…
Thanks again for all of the suggestions!
