I’m a little late getting these posted but I wanted to do so to give thanks to two people: Marc Spagnola, the wood whisperer (I hope I spelled you name right Marc!) for the directions on building the cutting board and Andy (who else when it comes to boxes) for the palm boxes. I made the boxes a little bigger than Andy’s so that the would accomodate money and making the giving of cash a little more personal. I made about 8 of the cutting boards and they were a hit with everyone. I made about the same number of boxes.
Thanks again to Marc and Andy.

Great job, what kind of wood on the boxes. Your so close you could drive over and teach me how to do the inlays.

Thanks for looking…the 1st cutting board is maple and purpleheart, the 2nd is maple and your guess. Its a piece that was given to me and I think its either padauk or tigerwood.
The boxes are as follows: #3 box of camphor burl, lid curly maple: #4&5 box-bloodwood, lid-curly maple: #6 box-birdseye maple, top walnut. The inlays are various pieces of left over materials including maple, purpleheart, ebony,and walnut. 308 gap…anytime!
