We all accummulate that box of little leftover pieces of exotic wood and hate to toss them, because we may just need it someday. I decide to spend some time cutting and gluing up the leftovers, and this is what came out of it. There are 221 pieces total, 12 different exotic hardwoods. Black Walnut-Ambrosia Maple-Paduck-Shedua-Yellowheart-European Beech-Purpleheart-Bocate-Santos Mahogany-Goncalo Alves-Anigre-Makore. It measures 12×12 x 1 3/8 and finished with salad bowl finish and mineral oil/beeswax. The gluing took a few more steps then normal but it came out okay. I am going to be givening this to a woman volunteer who I met a few weeks ago who sits all day watching another elderly woman with dementia.
