Cheese boards

This is a sample of a cheese board that I decided to make for some Christmas gifts. It was fun and easy to make and because of its size I was able to make it from scraps in the shop. Bonus.

Very very nice. Whoever gets this is going to love it. Awesome work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Nice choice of wood, the contrast is interesting. Can I be on your Christmas list?

Thanks mickit. Almost done. Have oiled half the boards. More labour involved than I first thought. Sold a few of them. Should have charged more.

Thanks. Some of the boards had more contrast than others. Quite a bit of variation in the cherry. Some deep rich red some quite light and not a big difference between the maple.

Nice boards. That is the cool think about some woods-every board is a new color and or grain.
