This year’s Christmas gifts. I made 8 edge-grain cutting boards for family and a couple neighbors. I was going to to do end-grain, but ran out of time. Woods used are maple, black walnut, and cherry. I tried to do a few different styles, so people got to unwrap a board that was different from the others (we did Christmas at multiple houses so I didn’t need 8 unique designs). Finish was mineral oil and beeswax.
Also made a wine rack using the plans from Wood magazine. Tiger maple and Black walnut. Finish was a couple coats of BLO and paste wax.
I made my father a golf ball rack out fo Black Walnut and Tiger Maple with a nice book-matched back, but failed to get a picture of it before my wife wrapped it up. Finish was a couple coats of BLO and paste wax.
Last picture is a project that started about 4 months ago. My daughter may not appreciate my woodworking right now, but she sure liked the bow that was on one of the boards, so I say she helped. Finish was the bow.
