I made these boards as last minute christmas gifts for my mother and mother-in-law. I saw the Wood Whisperer’s video and for the most part followed his plans.(thanks Marc).

I managed to get them done in 3 days. Very simple project other than all the sanding. My table saw left some deep burns in the end grain(blade is starting to dull) This gave me an excuse to buy a new sander. I purchased my first ros which worked great but somewhat slow.(very happy with it kent)

Wood is hard maple and purple heart.

Yea! New tools!
A guy I work with says that the only reason for a project is to have an excuse to buy new tools.

You done good. They look great.

Nice sanding job Randy!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone should buy a new tool for every project.

The boards look great. I like the contrast of the wood upi chose.

Nice boards and I agree, every project is an excuse to buy at least one new tool!

Nice boards, I made the same ones… It’s a nice design… I already had a ROS, but this project made me convince myself I need a drum sander! LOL.

Looks good…
