My first cutting boards, due in part to the inspiration from you fine folks at Lumber Jocks! I appreciate all the tutorials and work from fellow LJ’s. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Thank you for your kind words. The wood is Black Limba and was purchased on Ebay at a store called
ExoticWoods. I think they’re in TN, and they are very nice and knowledgeable people with an awesome collection of lumber.
Thanks again and enjoy the holidays.

Very nice looking boards..!!..the orientation certainly makes for an outstanding look..!..

Must admit I have never heard of the black limba type wood…will have to check it out for sure, curious if that is spalting or just the natural look of the wood..??!!
