When I was recovering in the hospital from my heart procedure, I heard of a fundraiser they were having, so when I got home I took some pieces from the scrap box and put together two Cheese/Bread boards to donate for the fundraiser. First one is 7×13 and the second is 7-3/4×11 and made from Sugar Maple;Shedua;Macawood;
Purpleheart;BlackWalnut;Paduck;Chestnut;Bubinga;Santos Mahogany;Yellowheart;Marblewood. I will be delivering them today. By the way, the heart procedure did not work, so I am meeting with the heart specialist next week to see if there is another way of fixing the problem.

These are both very nice. Love the woods you used and the way you designed them. Lotta work went into these and your attention to detail shows!

I hope and pray you can get the health problems corrected.

Thanks all for the kind comments and good wishes. Larry; the spline was very easy to do. I just made a 1/4” wide x 1/4” deep dado cut on the table saw. I used a “thin rip table saw guide” to make the splines. I inserted the splines on the opposite sides first and fitted the other two sides.

You forgot to mention the marblewood on the second one. I spent a few minutes trying to figure out what type of wood that was the you used which looked an awful lot like marblewood. After looking at your previous board (which used some marblewood) I concluded that it must have just been an omission on your part.
