They look great

What are the deminsions?
What type of woods?

-- A famous poet once said: “There is a name hidden in the shadow of my soul, the name is wood. Sweet, ever beautiful, earth grown wood. It warms my heart and brings a tear to my eye.”

Thanks! It’s approximately 18” by 15”. This one is birdseye and wenge, but I’ve also made some substituting the wenge with lacewood, or zebrawood.

Nice looking board. How are you holding the banding on the end grain, glue only?

If you are just getting started, I’d say you are well on your way. Nice job.

Really nice design and well executed. but watch that edge banding – you may have a problem with expansion and contraction of the wood, which may spoil a lovely piece

A very elegant and sophisticated design, especially for your first time! I see you enjoy a challenge with simple objects. Functional art is a goal of mine!
