Made a couple boards this week. One is made out of black walnut and was really simple to make. I think the size of the black walnut one is perfect for a couple of filets. The other board is made out of hickory I really payed attention to the grain detail on this one hope you endjoy. I also got to mess around with a new camera so the photos are better than they usually are finally doing the boards a little justice.
