More serving boards for my wifes business, Winefinity.net
Her sister and her make wine themed gift items and wanted to augment that with a some cheese/serving boards that tie in nicely.

These give me a playground to try new designs and sometimes make me scratch my head on how to cut and assemble the pieces.

#1- Cherry with maple center and walnut borders, plugs of wenge, bloodwood, purpleheart.

#2- Deco style that is an improvement on the one I posted about a week ago. It took me awhile to perfect the cuts and angles. Its maple with bloodwood shoulders and strips with a wenge plug.

#3- Cherry,maple, two kinds of mahogany, walnut.

I coated these with an old formula handed down through our family. Its fermented hamster milk, Pinesol, bacon grease, and a dash of nutmeg, and its aged in bleach jugs until it thickens. Its a Green product…literally.

Good Looking servettes!

Question: Do you use an automatic milking machine on the Hamster cows or do you do it the old fashioned way.. by hand?

Great looking board Andy. Wow, that finish sounds more like something you might want to drink instead of wasting it on woodworking. Might make a great BBQ sauce too.

Another poor Hamster abuse story shared with the world : (
LMAO ..sounds like a great recipe and the boards are quite unique as well.
I’m torn between the first and second boards , but I guess I would buy the first one …no wait….darn it!!

Not content with making fabulous boxes, you have taken on making servers with the same drive.
