    board run finished

    well, just about. started with 9 boards, 3 were taken sunday at party(gifted), one to chef, one to amateur chef, one to relative.
    heres the six that are left. just about dry and ready for final coat of wax/oil
    some of these were in other pics I showed, and the other boards might have been in the pics also.
    all are min of 1.5 inches thick, none are smaller than 11-12 inches, all have rubber feet with stainless steel screws.

    Nice looking boards Allen. Like the designs, I'm sure the recipients will too.

    Alan,
    I think we need an intervention. These boards are just to nice to not build. Just let your mind run wild.Click image for larger version.

    thanx for the kind comments.

    its a good way to get rid of the boards that were cupped and one that had too many knots to be useful for much else.
    a lot of cutting and trimming. I finally used some of the hickory I had sitting around for 7 years.

    david, do you sell boards, or are they all for gifts?

    I try to sell some of the cheese boards are local deli. The others are for sale but usually end up as gifts to family and friends.
    Craft fairs have done to well for me.
    I am going to work on the larger angle boards and also the tumbling block board. Just to keep busy and maybe someone would like to have one.

    PS I still think we need an intervention for our obsession.
