SDF, Thank you for the feedback. If these sell then my next batch I will be sure to mix it up between horizontal and vertical. I made these vertical based on the picture below, I made this for my wife. I showed it to a few people and recieved orders for 3, most wanted either more white or more brown. So that is how I came up the new design. I switched to Ash vs Curly maple though because the curly wasn't going to show well in the new design.Bk, just an observation but most people prefer the boards run horizontal versus vertical...otherwise they're looking awesome.
