I made this as a wedding present for my cousin. Nothing tremendously fancy about, but I really like the way the hickory popped once the mineral oil soaked into it. The edges were rounded over with a 3/8” bit. Wodds used were: hickory, cherry, walnut and maple. Rubberized feet on the bottom. Finished with 3 applications of mineral oil and then two coats of mineral oil/beeswax. 9” x 12” with finger holds routed on all four sides.
As always the lightning and the use of flash or not makes a huge difference in the way in which the pictures turn out. The first picture was taken without flash and the remaining three with flash.
