Another co-workers boards.
Black Walnut with Tiger Maple accents.
Figured Maple, Black Walnut, Figured Mahogany…pictures can’t do this board justice (not with my camera at least) LOL
Both finished with Mineral Oil.
Thanks for looking : )

The Lazy Sue was also great.

amagineer,
No feet so you can choose which side you like to show, and cut on the other side : )
I make all of my boards so that there is a better side (in my eyes) for display , and a side that should be cut upon , but I let the customers decide for themselves.
thanks for asking : )

thanks for the comments , my friends : )

I especially like the walnut board with that undulating grain and the sapwood inclusion.

You take photos as well as I do!! That Walnut board IS nice. I like using a whole piece as you did with a little bit of another wood for contrast. The other board has possibilities, but the color of the photo is off. Thanks for sharing.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Thanks for all of the nice comments , my friends : )

robert t , I couldn’t capture the true colors of the second board to save my soul that day : (
It really looked nice and the edge grain Mahogany shimmered and sparkled to no end.
I questioned whether to post it or not and now I know better.
Thanks for the honest input : )
