Well I need the boards and need to make more. The first board is made with some Apple wood I got with Sycamore and Yellow heart, Oak and Padauc, the second is Chestnut, padauc and I am not sure of the middle wood with some rock inlay. Tineo, paduac Tiger wood, Yellow Heart and again the middle wood I am not sure off. The Fourth board
is Cool Maple, Paduac, Yellow Heart and Purple Heart. The next is Zibra wood Yellow Heart and Padauc, and last but not least Lace wood and you can see the rest.
Thanks for stopping bye Dennis

Beautiful work job on all of them. I need to work on my cutting boards more. Hope they keep selling well for you.

Those are beautiful. Do you use biscuit joints or some other method in joining the boards? Also what kind of finish do you use? Finally question. What is the final grit sand paper do you use?
Oh well one more question. Where do you get all that different kind of wood?
Thanks and hope you guys are doing okay. Nice to see you guys working as a couple.

I really like pic 4. But all very eye catching.

Very nice, really like the live edge on the one in your first picture, but you really need to zoom to truly appreciate the others—they’re all attractive with great grain/contrast.
