Made a board over the weekend. first time Ive taken different slabs and mixed them together. Makes for a nice random yet pattern look. This block is also probably one of the thickest boards that I have made 19 1/4×13 1/2×2 3/4 its made from maple cherry mahogany and black walnut. Im gonna start making some templates so that I can route handles into some of the boards that I make. Oh yeah I almost forgot I also used a drum sander on this piece. I just purchased a used shop pro 25 and boy does it cut down the sanding time on end grain. Ill be sure to post a review as it is sometimes hard to find out about these machines prior to purchase.
