Very nice ,Rick, I like them all. The first one is very well done, must have been a lot of drilling and feeding the blade through little holes to do that pattern. The snowman the same. Good work and a lot of patients. You did good getting the grain to match around the box and the contrasting colored splines and handle really set it off.
I have never seen a Karate Skill level board before, what a neat idea. Must be a Yankee fan in the family, or maybe a Derrick Jeeter fan? clever idea for book ends.
Good job, very nicely done, and well recived too I guess.
