Default End Grain Boards for My Dad's Siblings

These are the last two boards that I promised to my Dad's siblings, using the 200+ year old Pecan from his tree.
I have been out of commission lately, but I am back.
I will be doing some different type of projects: Wine Boxes, Business Card holders, Parallel Clamps, some Utensils, and a Tie and Belt rack for my closet. I need to mix it up a bit. I don't want to get bored doing the same stuff.
The woods used: Black Walnut, Cherry, Jarrah, Mahogany, Maple, Pecan, Purple Heart, White Oak, and Yellow Heart.
As always, they are fun to build. Thanks for all of the great info that everyone shares.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Those are too nice to cut on Ellery. Good to have you back.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thank you Richard and Charles. I really appreciate all of the nice comments. It makes our efforts just that much nicer. I have made about 40 so far in almost 4 years. I don't do production runs. They are all different.
Some will never be cut on. Thats OK, they have that option. All have been made for friends and family who have been very supportive to me over the years.

Very nice job you did on the design and build. The contrasting colors really stand out.

Ellery when you come back you come back full steam ahead with some great cutting boards.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.
