These are boards I made today the first picture is of a pattern that is doing very well so far. The fourth picture is the cut off from the first two boards and the four is a board I started before our show on this past Sunday. Great show it was.
Thanks Dennis

Very nice work. I really like the one with the diagonal piece in it. They look like they are not too heavy either.

Nice work. I am glad you are selling some – that is great.
I also think it is nice to have some lighter boards around. We use both heavy endgrain and lighter edge grain boards at home.

Good job,

Great work, how thick are they? Do you have any issues with gluing end grain?

Looks good Dennis, I recognize some of the wood but not all of them. Please let me know what you used.

To answer a few questions they are made with Cherry wood walnuts and maple and a mistry wood lol
As far as gluing end grains I have only been doing wood work just over a year and have no clue what issues I would be having my boards are solid that all I know and the are staying together. They are 3/4” thick

Nice looking boards. People really respond to form more than function don’t they??

As an engineer i lean too fat to function.

Most people say my end grains are too pretty too cut on. Maybe I should listen!

Nice job, Dennis. The mystery wood is Padauk, if you mean the red strips. I am glad they sold well. Good luck in Genoa this weekend. You made the top 3 today!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

I am really supprised that the ones you glue <end> stay togather. Or I am missing something. They look great though.

Have your say...
