Finally got around to up loading some pics to my other web site… so thought you all might like some closer shots of the finished boards…
All are made from Camphor Laurel.
I do have several boards to make with all the caps I received from friendly LJs..
All are 12 inches wide and between 14 and 16 inches long… with a thickness of around 1 inch…
They all have a hole to hang them by… and all sharp edges have been rounded over.
Finish is mineral oil…or liquid paraffin oil as it is sold down under…
I will be posting a slide show at my other blog site… this is so that I do not over load the front page here with hundreds of boards…come over and have a look if you like…
By the way…
1. XXXX Gold
2. Hello Kitty….plastic button..
3. XXXX Bitter [with XXXX Man]
4. Carlton Draft
5. Coopers Light
6. Jolly Roger… this one is a button from a fabric shop…go figure…

The wood is just stunning, Larry.
Your boards are still just the best I have ever seen.

Hey Larry, what can I say? The boards are great and you have cornered another niche market. Your website looks like an excellent sales tool. and although I tease the heck out of you, I admire your work and your good spirits. You are the Crocodile Dundee of Os woodworkers, Dame Edna must be very proud of you.
Keep u comin’ Cobba.

Great job Larry! You’ve chosen a perfect wood to be highlighted by the mineral oil finish. Your bottle cap collection will attract a wide range of shoppers too!

I, like Len (Dusty56) love that wood. Is that a local species? What a great idea for a twist to an existing product line. Since you asked for different caps I am assuming that the ones you get are twist top type, correct? My area (WA state) is a plethora of micro brews so I will have to keep an eye out and collect you some caps for a unique BBQ Board. This would make a very unique sandwich serving board at a small pub (idea for a new client for you).
Thanks for sharing my friend

Edit – I googled it (Camphor Laurel) and found that it was introduced to the US in 1875 and has become naturalized in the Southern US, Hawaii and parts of Calif. In Florida is has been declared a category I invasive species.

Excellente looking boards Larry. It just shows to go you that a fantastic piece of wood can be as appealing as the boards with an extensive amount of laminated glue ups.

Patron, you might offer those plastic caps to Larry to use, it may get orders flowing.

Larry my friend. What a cool idea. I really love the first board and its color! Neat idea might have to make one for our outdoor kitchen. Thx

I’ll look for caps as well, but I don’t have many beer bottles here, being I have a duel Kegs system in our bar. Your always welcome over for a cold one friend.
