Cool Board

Made two for Xmas prezzies.
1)...end grain Narra with Purpleheart 'crenellations '
2)... end grain Walnut with Purpleheart bands

No idea why the camera doesn't see the Purplheart colour the way it appears to the human eye but it doesn't look anything like it does in the pics. It actually looks much darker and way more subtle. (?)

Thanks!
I love the look of Narra end grain; beautiful stuff. When you do the mineral oil thing, man, does it ever darken and 'pop'.

For anyone who's curious about 'Narra'...

Could be the type of light in the room also . Led lights have a surplus of blue effecting the outcome . I prefer halogen

No LEDs, just incandescents. I'm going to have to try Irfanview; I keep hearing good things about it

Very nice work, Dan! Those seem to shine a fair amount; is that mineral oil or some other finish?
