This is 5th board and the the 1st end grain that I have made and it is made with Pecan, Walnut, White Oak, Hickory, Maple, and Cherry. Just to explain the title it seemed appropriate since the middle looked like cotton to me. I have to give a nod to Degoose for the help on this one thanks. I was a big hit. I decided to go with a BBS finish on one side and on the other side a hand hued on the other side just to give that rustic feel. As well an homage to the 75 and 100 year old Pecan and Walnut that was used in the making of this board.

Excellent job. If you are getting help from degoose, that’s as good as it gets.

Very nice board. Something I just learned recently I will pass on. The “Pecan” tree is in reality a Hickory tree that produces Pecans.
