Cheese Board=Apple Pie=Church Fair

A neighbor came over and asked if I would make her a Cheese Board for a wedding present. I know she is on a fixed income so I went to my scrap box and made this Cheese Board with Black Walnut, Sugar Maple, Paduck, Cherry, Macawood, Flaked Oak, White Limba, European Beech, Santos Mahogany and Black Walnut handles.
She asked how much it cost, I told her I would trade it for one of her apple pies. Seeing I do not eat sweets, I donated the pie to the church fair. Everyone was happy.
