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

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.
