Ahhhhh Larry is at it again! Nice mate. I just sold my last cutting board I had in stock. I really need to get some other projects done before I make more boards but there so fun!

Glad to see you have some new ones. I read McleanVa’s post and saved it as well. Great post and helpful like so many others here.

Well back to work the airplanes are about to land and some of them will need some repairs. Cya Mate!

Variations on the theme… all look pretty cool, Larry.

Larry has taken up the challenge yet again. And not just once, but 4-times (so far).

These are cool. I like them all. The pattern in each repeats, and yet the closer you look, the more you can see the subtle variations in the wood. Nice job.
