I bought some Florida Rosewood from a guy on woodbarter. I thought I would make some boxes, but the natural edge said cutting boards. I also had some Anegre?? that seemed to go with the Rosewood. Then added the Purpleheart and Yellowheart to spice it up. It is 1” thick and about 20” x 15”. Mineral oil and wax. This is the second of these. Someone who had received one of my boards as a Christmas present wanted one for her daughter. She bought the one like this right off the drying shelf! This other board pictured used up the rest of the Anegre with some Curly Maple and some Carob. It is the same size as the Rosewood board. I also wanted to try a Walnut and Yellowheart board to see how it would look. Here is a quick picture of it. I have a show in Roseburg, Oregon the weekend of the 28th. Maybe these will find homes!
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
