This is a Christmas present for my wife’s grandmother. Her husband was a woodworker and passed away about 6 years ago. She asked me to go through his lumber and take anything I could use. I found a nice piece of maple with some brown flecks in it. They were the color of walnut so I paired it with this walnut that had some very nice figure. The hole in the handle is for both hanging the board and to house an oil bowl.

Nice wood combinations and good use of his wood. It does remind me of the paddle my old grade school principal wielded.

What a beautiful keepsake you made. The walnut grain is wonderful.
