I have been out in the shop for about a month now after finally (after over about 1-1/2 years) getting my asthma & COPD controlled, getting some long overdue projects going. So here is a stack of boards.

I wanted to say that the board on top is from an olive tree cut from my front yard. I cut wafers from a limb to get the effect, although as usual I am second guessing the choice of Paduk for the trim

I do the same with olive, then I cut them up and put them together to make a bigger pattern. Will do a quick post to show you what I mean

Well, it shows you jumped right back on the horse (saw horse that is) and found your way around the shop once more. Great looking boards

Those are really cool, Dave. I like the idea of using the wafers with all the rings of the tree showing. Nice job on all of ‘em!!

Glad to see you are back in the shop. I may come by this year when we get to Arizona!!...........Cheers, Jim

Jim I sold my lathe. The good one, I did not intend on ever being out in the shop anymore. So now I am in the market for another one.

Great looking batch of boards. Happy you were able to get back into the shop – I don’t know what I would do without mine.

Don’t second guess yourself on any of them. They all look great.
