Both of these timbers are Eucalypts…

White mahogany -Eucalyptus acmenoides

Jarrah -Eucalyptus marginata

Alternating strips…showing the beginning..

In clamps with enough glue to have a small amount of squeeze out…

wonderful contrast on the two eucalypts

as we dont see much of the white mahogany here in the west so i would never have thought of it

i would normally use tasy oak as a contrast for jarrah but this is much nicer

Hey Hooky, I thing the WM has a richer colour…TO is a little bland for my taste

Great combination of wood, Larry.
The contrast is really attractive.

Larry, if you keep posting these, I may have to stop making boxes and give one a try. They look so nice.

Beautiful cutting board, and great contrast using the two types of Eucalyptus. Just went through the whole blog you did, thank you, looks like a cutting board will be in my future now. Great project.

Like the new beard also, LOL.

Nice job, Larry.

That’s a pretty even squeeze out on your glue joints. You must be doing something right.

The woods and the boards look wonderful as always Larry. I have to tell you that I am highly suspicious of the names you Aussies use on some of your woods and I often wonder if they are really related to the species indicated by their names. For example, I doubt that Mahogany is in any way related to Eucalyptus (is my ignorance showing?). I’m just mentioning this in fun, as I do enjoy all the amusing names given some of the different woods down under. I imagine a lot of them are actually correct, but also that a lot of them are just sort of popular nicknames. Have a great day!
