I thought I had better post a few pictures of things I’ve been working on lately so I don’t lose my membership to LJ’s ;o)

Some of the cutting boards I have made and sold to folks.

1 – Walnut, Jatoba and Bubinga
2 – Jatoba with Maple Accents
3 – Jatoba, Red Oak, Walnut
4 – Jatoba and Maple
5 – Jatoba and Maple (Large board)
6 – Jatoba, Maple, Cherry and Walnut

Nuttin fancy but I likes ‘em

Cheers all…..Don

Such a great job on all of them. I absolutely love the jatoba boards with the thin maple. I really like the subtle rounded shape. You’re getting pretty darn good at this.

Have a great Christmas. Hope Santa brings you more toys.

Great work Don. I like the ones with the accent the best. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Hey Wiser….the board measured ~14” x 14”. Actually, the only non-end grain was the Babinga and it was edge grain. The Walnut and Jatoba were end grain. Picked up a nice wide piece of Jatoba for this board.
