I’ve made a few more of these 24” long by 12” boards with the handles and drip groove. This seems to be a really popular design. These are both made out of cherry and walnut. I need to start paying attention to grain colors better as I should have mixed the walnut a little better on the one on the left. The problem is before it’s sanded and before it’s finished the differences in grain color don’t stand out as much. The cherry sure did come out nice. Since I have a lot more cherry than I do walnut I’ll probably make a lot more like the one on the right which is mostly cherry with the highlight strips of walnut.
