I have had to shovel through a few feet of snow, but I have been having fun in my shop. I have made of few cutting boards for a show. The first is African Mahogany, Hard Maple and Purpleheart, 1 and 1/2’ thick by 13’ BY 18”. I have another one in the first glue up stage, but went on to something else. The next two are sets of ‘S’ boards made of Birdseye Maple and Lacewood. The next is Big Leaf Maple and Walnut. The Walnut has a lot of nice color to match the Maple. The fifth one is Purpleheart and Curly Maple. The last photo is some of the Bagette Boards of various hardwoods- Maple, Walnut, Mahogany, and others. 22” by 7” I used Mineral Oil and wax as a finish. When I finish making 20 of these, I appreciate my day job with 8 year old kids a lot!! Of course, the wood doesn’t usually argue with me. Now back to sanding a bunch of boxes.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
