I had some pieces left over from the SPalm 2 step board… and my good mate John admired the larger board so much… I made this for him… to use in his bar..
Last pic is a teaser… you all know me … I like adding another pic to the show… this is John’s bar… I have just about finished installing a foot rail..

Wish I could be there to order a gin and tonic and watch them cut the lime on that board.

For the couple of times I made boards, I came up short.
You got leftovers and on the top of that you made a very nice board with them.

Great job as always!

Love the board. The little ones are so easy to just pull out when you need them.
I made a bunch for the fair and sold every one… called them “bar boards”... not so imaginative but it worked!

I like that board, it is an amazing piece to look at.

I’m still at the offcut off a plank of Beech.

Was that shape chosen to maximize the use of the scraps, or to fit into a certain space at John’s bar, or maybe some other reason?

Whatever the reasoning, great use of scrap!
