I foolishly decided to make Christmas gifts again this year. I found a black locust slab in my pile that ended up having 26 salad servers in it! I ended up with 13 sets of salad servers after about 25 hours of work. General Finishes salad bowl finish is a wonderful finish, and it dries quickly also. Ended up wiping on four coats.

Andy they are great nice curves and again your impressive inlay.
I’m sure they are going to be well received.

I made a set from Railway Ties, not nice but that was what they wanted and as they had bought a full dining room suite. how could I say no.

Nicely done! I like ergonomic handles, as they look like they would be very comfortable to use. The inlay is quite impressive and each has it’s own wonderful design.
