Very nice! I made a recipe “full sheet” holder for my daughter-in-law about a month ago out of cherry. The design I came up with was quite a bit different but yours has the figured hickory which is hard to beat for looks. I made a jewelry box out of some of this material and it shows up the figured wood as well. Want to take a look at it, you can see it on my Etsy store at: http://www.etsy.com/listing/90641520/figured-hickory-walnut-jewelry-box
Here’s a picture of the cherry stand that I built…..I used a piece of plexiglas to place over a recipe shee to keep the goodies from splashing on the sheet.
Is that all one wide piece of hickory or did you laminate more than one board together? Just curious, I can’t hardly tell from the photo.

Beautiful. I’ll say REALLY sharp Hickory! I will need one to match my new Hickory kitchen. One of my favorite woods. It’s a bear to work with but worth every bit of the effort.

It is actually two board glued up….your is very nice too…..a little more practical too probably with the full view! I just had some really pretty hickory and wanted to make something that would show off the grain.

Although I agree with dee2, hickory is hard to work with (especially going through a planer), it is ouststanding in appearance…...especially the figured hickory like you used. And…..it is indeed worth the effort. Thanks for the extra views, your project is outstanding!
