These are some new instrument shaped cutting boards. I have a show this weekend and have sold all of these I had made. I used some old Figured Maple for these, plus some Walnut, Mahogany, and a little Purpleheart. I also added a bit of Maple Burl below the ‘neck’. The ‘strings’ are Soft Curly Maple. They are about 10-12” wide and 20” long by 1”thick. These are fun to make and I don’t have to worry about how they sound! Mineral Oil and Wax for a finish. I also made another Carob and Walnut board-about 20” x 12” x 1”. The last one was gone quickly. I have to see if Rustfever(Ira) has any more of the Carob. It is really pretty and hard. We need to have another tool and wood swap at Woodcraft in Sacramento!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Robert, these should sell well…as you know. They are nice work and have real attraction for musicians and those who love music. Your wood selections and craftsmanship are superb. Keep your prices high so you can buy that wide-belt sander that you really are going to need.
