That’ll show her. Ha! I just love messing with the kids minds. And what can they say?

Love the look of that one Barb. The dye really made it pop,

Perfect bread board. You did a good job highlighting the figure of the wood. Now, work on the big one.

Very pretty bread board, the tiger maple is just gorgeous and the finish enhanced it. Lucky daughter to have it.
