Great job on your cutting board. By the smile on your daughters face, she looks pleased with it.

Nice job. As Geoff says, you did a fine job keeping the maple clean. How did you do it; with a scraper? Oh, and by the way, it’s a good thing her Momma is good looking. Seriously, that smile says it all. Good one.
