A Wedding Gift
I was finally able to get back in the shop. A few setbacks, but I am moving forward now.
My niece is getting married tonight. I made the couple an end grain cutting board. The woods used are: Black Walnut, Jarrah, Mahogany, 200+ year old Pecan, Purple Heart, White Oak, and Yellow Heart. I finished the board in Mineral oil. It measures 14" X 12" X 1 1/4" tall.
I have made quite a few of these boards, in the last few years. I have cut my process time in half since my first board. Some things I learned, some were due to new machines added.
My next project will be 3 wine boxes made out of: Black Walnut, Mahogany, and some locally grown Cherry. (South Louisiana)
I want to thank everyone for the informative, encouraging post that have been shared here. It really makes woodworking fun.
