    Vaughn's excellent tutorial

    Hey, folks,

    You may remember me complaining about blowing up a cutting board. Well, looks like I finally got it right last night. Here's what I found went I went out to the shop this morning:

    More work to do on it, and good stories to tell, but I'm rushing out the door...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Vaughn's excellent tutorial

    Yeah Toni,

    I was going to ask Bill where he got the seeds to grow something that nice in his shop.

    Bill,

    Excellent work. Now if I had a shop I would try one too, but that will come, later.

    Thanks Vaughn.

    Aloha, Tony

    Very nice! But I don't understand how you are going to cut something on a board with all of the angles and ridges - all cutting boards I have ever used have been flat. Must take a special knife, I guess. ;-))

    Very nice Bill! I've looked for wood like that but never found any. What kind of tree is it? Can I get it at Lowes?

    Bill and Vaughn have figured out how to sprinkle a little special "cuttingboard sawdust". It attracts the "cuttingboard fairies" and they leave those as recognition!

    Nicely done Bill!
