A few gifts I’ve made recently:

1. A lift lidded box for my Dad’s birthday. Zebrawood and walnut with a baltic birch ply bottom. Finished with BLO and wax.

2. Candle holder for one of children’s teachers. Maple and cherry for body and cocobolo for feet. Finished with wipe on poly.

3. Cutting board for in-laws. Maple, walnut, cherry, and mahogany. 16” x 24”, 1 1/2” thick. Weighs a ton. Finished with mineral oil.

Thanks for looking.

Wonderful gifts. I’ve never liked Zebrawood much, but in this instance you’ve made it work beautifully. The candle holder is a ‘stealable’ idea! I like the angled legs wrapped around and above it. Gives it class. And cutting boards are always popular. All these will be appreciated, I’m sure. Nice work!
