This board is the result of scavaging a couple of beat up pallets from Lum Liq. They didn’t look like the rest of the pallets and when I spied the cut end grain I knew what I’d found. Jatoba or Brazilian Cherry. Hard stuff but burns the same when cutting on the tablesaw with an underpowered Sears contractor tablesaw. The wife didn’t look thrilled to see me come home with these ugly pallets hanging off the back of the pickup, but I told her they’d disappear in less than an hour. Which they did. a lot of the whiteboard on the top was actually Jatoba sapwood and it was spalted, so I saved that too and am in the process of making clocks out of that.
17 1/4” L x 10 1/2” W x 1 3/4” tall, plus 1 1/2” tall cocobolo bun feet which was a good excuse to play on the lathe. My wife had requested the bun feet, which were not as easy to duplicate as the previous boards feet. Running out of counter space (she’s got three now)
This one is salad bowl finish for the board itself and EEE+Mylands friction polish for the legs.
