This collection of boards are made from Walnut, Maple and Cherry. They were a enjoy to build and all have new homes now. These are sure easy to get rid of when you gift them. So far no returns.

I foresee zero returns in your future Geoff…except tax returns, of course.

Mr Harper needs his money!

Nice boards…

Those are handsome.
Like BC, sometimes they come back, but only for a finish redo.

Good work Geoff,

Nice zipper pattern on the CB’s. Once you start it’s hard to stop. Everyone loves end grain CB’s. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all comments.

It seems like I learn something with each new build. Some of the cherry and maple and even walnut were similar colors due to sap wood.

Larry, thanks for all your help with grain orientation and additional coaching and instruction, it really helped me improve. I now understand CB building techniques much better and applied new knowledge to other projects. Old dog, new tricks, neat. From wood selection to glue up and fit and finish. Thanks Larry.
