Last month I had an order for “15 boards” ...the client came back and told me that he was very happy with the boards and that his customers loved them too…
Just after that I had another order from a different client for 10 of the same boards…
All made from Rosewood…360 mm by 210 mm, 20 mm thick.
The first pic is the 10 … next pics are of the jig I made to align and clamp the boards to the table of my CNC… to make the juice groove [moat]
Last pic is the large carving board…with accents of Maple… 600 mm by 400 mm

What type of Rosewood did you use, and how pricey is it in your area ?
Love the last one with the accents : )
Happy New Year to you and yours, Mate : )

Those are sweet looking boards and an even sweeter toy you have there. One of these days I might make the jump into CNC, but only if I get into more of a production situation than just a hobby. I’m still fascinated by watching how good woodworkers enhance their projects even further with this computerized tool.
