I have a bone yard of projects that just don’t do it for me. This cutting board was one of those that I just couldn’t put in anybody’s kitchen for several reasons. I stared at it for a long time while it sat over in the corner. The colors kind of had that beach feel and I had an old photo I wanted to frame. Padauk, oak, walnut. Finish with spray Shellac….............................

Good idea. I usually just burn my projects that I don’t like. They give me that warm all over feeling.

Nice save! If you have a lathe you could make pens, fan pulls key chain blocks, another frame…... endless possibilities. Or like stefang put it, burn it and feel the warmth… (laughing)

Nice going… making something out of nothing…

... but, in all honesty, I didn’t think the cutting board was all That bad..

The frames you made out of the parts sure are pretty!


Thank you.
