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 now time to work!!!
