A collection of boards from over the last two weeks or so. Board number 14 will be out of clamps tonight…

I think I have 20 different types of wood used across these 6 boards… I have been experimenting with different edge profiles and different types of radiuses on the corners. I like my vertical raised panel bit as it creates a natural finger groove on the underside of the boards. I have only done one like this so far but will certainly do more in the future. Some folks like a chunky square edge as well, which I soften with 00 and 0000 steel wool before oiling the board.

I also want to do an end grain mosaic board of scraps… I have two bins of scraps that are spilling out onto the floor (end cuts off cutting board glue ups). And I have about 25 or 30 little strips off rough boards that I should make an end grain board of scraps.

As simple as these are to make, I think I learn another nuance every time I make one… :)

They all look good, have great wood colors and they stand out with the finish. Like more the rounded corners. Well done!
