After 3 surgeries and one year later, I am back in the shop. A cousin asked me to make her a 12×12 x 1” CB, so I thought this would be a good project to get my sawdust legs back. It is made from Shedua;Hard Maple;Macacauba;Marblewood:Hickory;Lacewood;White Oak. Sealed with Salad Bowl Finish and a mineral oil/beeswax bath. It sure feels good to get sawdust in my hair.
