The first board is a going away gift that I made a friend of ours that really admired my work. It is purpleheart and maple. She cried and said that she would cherish it and that it would stay in her family for generations. The rest are boards that I donated to my highschool for a fundraiser. One of them earned $900 in a silent auction. The other was a prize for a bingo night fundraiser. The third smaller one was a thank you to the lady who bought us tickets to the gala fundraier. The diamonds zig zag and checkered one is padauk, teak (I found out later that I was not supposed to put it in there) maple, bocote, walnut and cherry. The bowtie checkered board is maple and padauk for the large pieces and yellowheart and purpleheart for the smaller bowtie pieces. My next project is to make a bartop with one of my cuttingboard designs.
