No Maple Here……which is a departure for me…...

Yet another end grain board. This one is all exotics (unless you are from South America or Africa)…..Yellowheart (Pau Amarello) and Tigerwood (Goncalo Alves) with a Padauk border.
It has a nice glow to it….

Took a bunch of pictures and put a blog together here.

Thanks for looking…..

Fernando….I’m telling you, I always have a little Maple left…...promise….

David – the border is also endgrain so shouldn’t have to worry about exploding it!

Thanks for all the comments folks…..appreciate it.
