nothing too crazy here. this goes over the sink in our kitchen to provide a little extra counter space when we have friends over. its made of oak and walnut with mineral oil as the finish. i had some scraps of the walnut left over so I just decided to throw them in randomly. i didn’t know if my wife would really go for the randomness, but , she did. she really liked it and I got several compliments on it already. i really like doing just a little bit extra to really personalize a piece, so thats why I burned the R into the corner.

Yes very simple and good looking . Did you put any cleats on the underside to keep it from moving ?

Nice job Ryno. I really like the monogram and angled contrasting wood. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Jerry, I didn’t put anything on the bottom. I’m just taking my chances on it moving.

thanks everyone for the comments..
