Hey Mike….is this a commissioned piece or one you just decided to make?

I’ve had a few boards where I didn’t notice a sanding mark until I applied the oil…..then it pops out and that’s all I can see.

Very nice, by the way….

Very cool, why is it called a “sinister” board?

Neat take on the sinister original.
I like it.

You can always sand it again, if you want.

Note: Sinister is an LJ who made a board like this a while ago, and it has been copied a lot.

I usually wipe my boards down with some mineral spirits before finishing for two reasons..to get the fine sanding dust off, and it also acts like a finish which allows me to see if there are any sanding marks I missed. I also usually raise the grain on the board with a damp cloth a few times and knock it down with some 220 before finishing. That results in a silky smooth board even after you oil it.

Nice board.

I’ve gotten really good results from “wet” sanding after I apply a coat of mineral oil to the board. My smoothest boards have come from this method.

THANKS EVERYONE. AS I LOOK AT THE ORIGINAL SINISTER BOARDS I NOTICE HE ALTERNATED THE DIRECTION OF THE V’S—IN MY HASTE AND LACK OF AN EYE FOR DETAIL—I DID NOT. I STILL THINK THEY CAME OUT GOOD THO. SINISTER STATED I HIS BLOG TO MAKE SURE THE PIECES WERE PERFECTLY SQUARE AND I MUST AGREE THAT IS WHY MY SECOND BOARD FIT TOGETHER MUCH BETTER THAN THE FIRST. I SPENT A LOT OF TIME SANDING INDIVIDUAL BLOCKS TO FIT ON THE FIRST ONE.
FOR THIS BOARD THE H-PATTERN HAPPENED ONLY BECAUSE THAT WAS ALL THE WOOD I HAD AT THE TIME.
