The cutting board is Jarrah and Messmate (Eucalyptus obliqua).

The letter opener is Red Gum and is the typical shape of a Gum Leaf. I shaped this on a Wasp Sander.

The bottle stoppers were turned from scraps of (left to right) Huon Pine, Jarrah, Red Gum, Vic Ash, Jarrah, and Red Gum.

I looked at the wasp link, very ingenius. I wish I had thought of that. But, if I had, I wouldn’t have gotten around to doing anything with the idea.

Great projects!

Nice job Don

I see so many cutting boards that dont spark my interest but these did. I like the stoppers too!
