Just a quick project because some folks still like the simple edge grain boards…..

From the center out, its Lacewood, Cherry, Teak, Lacewood, Walnut, Goncolo Alves, Pau Amarello, Hard Maple.

The first two photos are without the mineral oil because they photograph better that way…..

Thanks for looking.

Nice rainbow Jeff. There are two that I haven’t heard of. Goncolo Alves and Pau Amarello. Are they South American?
Great job dude..

Throwing all them fancy names around. Down here we have a horse apple tree or some call it bow-dock, the Indians made bows out of it. The old timers made fence posts out of it and they are still standing. They would set the horse apples in there kitchens for a natural roach repellant. And it sure does work, I have seen it. Sorry, off subject. Small ADD moment.
Great choice of wood species Jeff. The colors flow. And the lace wood grain adds a little bit of difference to it. IMHO
Hope ya get what your asking for it.

I’m a real fan of edge grain boards and yours is a beauty. The lacewood adds some real interest.
Just a note though, is your colour balance off? Does it really look so green or is it maybe like this instead?

Hello Gene – thanks for the comments – not sure on the color balance myself, as I’m color blind (red green deficiency)...but for sure the fluorescent shop lights don’t make the best studio.

Based on your comment – I will do a bit of testing with the camera to see what’s up…..using a better set of eyes than mine!
