I am in the middle of making a birdseye maple serving board as a Christmas gift. It’s about 12”x14”x1/2”. I need to get my edges sanded exactly the way I want (smooth them out ever so slightly), then I’m going to really round over all the edges. I wanted this piece to be a little thicker, but alas, this is what I’ve got. Maybe next time!
I snapped a few photos this morning on my phone down in my basement shop of what I got done on it before heading in to work today.

After the drill press:
I think I’m going to use General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish on it and build a little bit of a finish maybe, but I haven’t committed to going that route yet.
