That’s a beautifull board.

You created a very nice contrast with the skull and crossbones.

Great work as usual.

I’ll second all the above, Beaut ! Larry, what’s “grapeseed oil” ? I’m guessing something like boiled linseed oil,
but is it realy from grapeseeds, like the stuff that makes than nice beverage ?
Just curious..
