At the recommendation of Jonathan in Denver, I used the rest of my walnut to make an end grain butcher block. It’s about 12”x16” and 1-3/4” Thick. Lots of milling, and lots of gluing, but it’s done. Planing all the kerfs out of the flooring is time consuming!

Going to give it to my uncle as gift when I go to Denver this weekend.

The second picture is a bread board that I threw together for my girlfriend while I was sanding down the block. It’s about 10×15x.5” Simple, but effective.

Oops, the bread board is actually 10×20x.5”

Sorry about the bad picture. Sooo hard to get a good picture because that walnut is so dark.

Wow, that was fast!

I guess you had to do it quickly though for your visit.

Looks good EROCK!

Any issues with all that gluing, cutting, turning, gluing?

Did you oil it, or use SBF?

Glad you got both these items done.

Enjoy your visit to Denver!

Eric, looks nice. I have been sizing the material I got from you and will post some pics later. I have put about 4 bamboo boards together so far. I’ve been real busy in the shop as last weekends show wiped me out of inventory (REALLY). I have 3 weeks before the next show so it’s pedal to the metal for me. I may have to make a special trip to your area so if I do I’ll stop by to say hey.

It’s good to see that you are making good use of the material. Feel free to stop by anytime!
