Just finished a padauk and purple heart cake knife the other night so I did some shots for it!
This one will shortly be display in a local rental business in the wedding section so hoping that generates some more interest in them!
Finished with clapshams beeswax finish.

Looks like you are really into this type of project, well done, will have to try making one of these, minimal wood and would make great gifts

That is really neat! Hope the non-woodworkers appreciate the material. Keep us posted on how they do.
These could be the next cutting board.

Very nice looking. Curious how you sealed/finished it. Any time I’ve used Padauk it bleeds and I’d be afraid it would bleed into moist food.

it is sealed with clapshams salad bowl finish which is a beeswax mineral oil finish. I did 3 coats. after sanding I blew it all out with the compressor so that helps eliminate some of the bleed I have found and by the second coat I wasn’t getting any pink coloration on my wiping rags anymore.

Thanks for the compliments guys! So far I am seeing that non wood workers buying them do actually care about the grain. Albeit for the looks more than the beauty of the wood itself but at least its something.
