As I had mentioned in my last post, this CB and Cheeseboard are made from my scrap box. The remaining pieces will be for smaller future projects. They are made from numerous different hardwoods. The Cheeseboard has black walnut handles with Shedua feet and is 7” x 12” x 1-1/4 thk. The CB is 12” x 19” x 1-1/2 thk.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice. You are onto something here using scraps for a more abstract look. Remember, they are not scraps but rather refined leftovers. :)

You’re right Shannon, people wouldn’t want to buy it if I told them it was made from scrap wood.

Those are the most beautiful scraps I’ve ever seen! I really like all the different colors and grain patterns. Thanks for sharing these excellent boards.

Don, I’ll keep that in mind for my next trip to ”The Steaming Tender” for a nice Prime Rib dinner : )
How small is too small of a piece for you to work with ?

Holy @#$% Batman!
Scraps?
So can you give me a time breakdown as I was wondering Just how much work has gone into producing a fantastic result!

Would it be too much also to ask what all the timber compositions were as well? !!

Again Fantastic result !!!

more great work don

good to see you stepping up again

all the scraps look so forlorn
just laying around in the bin

but you sure bring out their best

very well done
