it has been over 200 days since i have posted a project. (no shop) finely got the shop set up last week and thought this would be a good way to see if every thing is properly set up. made of maple and purple heart.
this 1 was going to my oldest daughter and was going to be used a lot so i made a cutting side that i can sand smooth easy and refinish when it is all cut up. I feel sooo. behind after looking at all the boards that have been made in the last few months (larry). i hope to have sawdust flying around the shop for the next month
27/7. there are so many ideas here i dont know where to start

Looks very nice Eddy. Been awhile for me too. I moved to Idaho and I heard you moved to Arizona I think? I just got my shop set up last week as I have some furniture to build for some customers.. Glad to see you are still at it.

Nice. I like the idea of having a work side and a show side. Maybe on my next board?

It’s a very well done board …I hope that all of those joints stay together with the seasonal movements of the woods. : )
The weave came out perfectly and the colors are so nice together.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Wow Eddy, this is fantastic.
Grain orientation looks in order, and the colors are vibrant together.
Congratulations on getting the shop back up and running.

“Shezabeaudymate!” I’ve made an end grain cutting board but that’s a beautiful and unusual rendition. Can you tell me where to look to learn how to have that style so that it looks like a basket weave cutting board? Thanks for your help.
