I was asked by a woman to design a Cheese/Breadboard to the music of the band “Train” and this is what I came up with. Their music is honest, deep and some references to space, so the Black Walnut reminds me of the solar system and the different colors of the type of music in their songs. It is 8-1/4×12-3/4×1-1/4 thk and made from
Black Walnut, Sugar Maple, Paduck, Marblewood, Canarywood, Yellowheart, Black Locust, Purpleheart, Cherry,
Shedua. I doweled the handles to the sides. I sealed it with Salad bowl finish and finished with hot mineral oil/beeswax.

That, my friend, is an out of this world board! Love the way you designed the handles on it. Very nice work and a lot of detail to it. Great job.
