I have had great luck with my live edge work this year so far. Everyone seems to really like the live edge. So on this board I desided to use some. The Board is 18 1/2” x 12 1/2 at it wides point. The woods are Padauk / Maple Walnut and Purple heart center. I think this is my favoret board I have made as of yet. I also like the Live Edge on my work.
Thanks again for the support Dennis

Dennis, i think every board is better than the last one. Still not a great fan of live edges, but warming up to them.

Nice. I am glad they are selling.
I would have thought that a live edge would not work well in the kitchen, with food and all. But I guess it will clean up with no problems.

SPalm you would cut on the back side were there is no live edge and use the live edge side for show and if they keep the board coated with Butcher Block Conditioner the board will last that much longer and clean up better.

I like the live edge furniture of course. Not sure I have seen it on something like this. Looks cool.

I am a big live edge fan. How do you ‘clean up’ your live edges? I use a 8” wire wheel on my bench grinder. It removes all the loose/soft stuff and textures the edge nicely.(use a full face sheild as this wire wheel will shed some wire frags!)

gfadvin I did it by hand with a wire grill grapper I bought to clean my band saw blabe. The wire brush worked great. I sanded it first before I used the brush.

Beautiful work, I use a coarse flapwheel on an angle grinder to clean live edges than a random orbit sander with a foam backing pad from klingspors for finer grits. glad their selling good.
