These are for two ladies that helped me when my wife was in the hospital. The boards are end grain, with hard maple & walnut and are 10.5” X 12”. Finished with 3 coats of mineral oil & 2 coats of mineral oil and bees wax. Thanks for viewing!

Thanks guys I appreciate your comments. They are a perfect size for RVs where the larger boards become too cumbersome.

The boards can also be used for checkers in RV increasing overall storage. Nice job

Thanks Smitty & Geoff. I wanted something different for the edge besides the typical round over so I went with a box core bit and made a slight cove for the edge treatment. It kinda dresses the boards up a bit. Thanks again all for your encouraging words!
