I had one piece of sunken cypress left and made two breadboards for my inventory. They are 8” x 15” x 2” and the sides are made from Shedua. I sealed them with Salad bowl finish and coated with mineral oil/beeswax. I sanding all the contour by hand. I then got an oscillating sander for Christmas, so sanding will be much easier next time.
Thanks for looking

Grizz; The barn where I will be setting up the crafts isn’t ready. I figure about another month. My inventory was wiped out at the holidays, so this month will allow me to replenish and have time for custom orders.

Don, glad to hear your inventory was “wiped out” it prompts me to see if I can find a sale outlet for some of my work.

I never made anything with the intention of selling them but I need to de clutter the room I have everything stored in.
I tried putting three tables on ebay but didn’t even get a bid or anybody making an offer so I don’t think its a suitable outlet.

Your Sunken Cyprus Breadboards:
Just what is sunken Cyprus? I assume its a pine variety?
The Shedua sides look superb, and its yet another variety I will have to go research to learn about.

The precise fitup is impressive along with the contrasting dowels.

-- Regards Robert
