A couple of the boards I made this weekend. The first for my sister-in-laws wedding present is Paduak, Maple, Mahogany and a little cube trick of Ebony, Maple, Holly and Koa. The second for a customer is Paduak, Maple, Tiete, and a bit of Hawaiian Koa. Comments and critiques are welcome.

Very nice, I’m sure you sister-in-law will be very pleased. I know I could not use a knife on something that obviously has had so much craftsmanship put into it :)

terrific CB’s, the patterns blend very well together. The Koa wood gives it a nice richness. I will have to try getting some Koa wood.

Very nice boards…well done!

Fearless prediction – these will become show pieces on someone’s countertop and never…NEVER see a knife come near them! Who would dare cut on them?

The first board is my favorite.

Is it maple and mahogany or walnut?
