XL End-grain cutting board

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


XL End-grain cutting boardSimple clean lines on this extra thick board. This board is made from maple, purple heart and walnut. All wood grain is vertical to make the board fully end grain which makes the board about 3 times harder than face grain. The maple is constructed in a chaotic random pattern (process of cutting, dicing up, and re-gluing 4 times). The inner border is of purple heart, followed w more chaotic maple, then a 1 outside walnut border. This is a larger board and extra thick. Routed in handles. Sanded thru drum sander 120, then orbital sander 120/220/320. Coated with mineral oil and beeswax mixture. I'll add rubber feet w stainless steel screws after a day of oil drying.Measures 15×20x2.5

SCROLL SAW BOWL MADE FROM POINCIANA LOG

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


SCROLL SAW BOWL MADE FROM POINCIANA LOGA friend gave me a small log nearly 2 years ago and it was dripping wet and very heavy.
But now it has dried out and is remarkably light in weight. It is also a very soft wood, I think it is POINCIANA.It has a very unusual Grain / Figuring running through it. Sanding was easy enough because of the softness, but I knew it would be difficult to achieve a gloss. So after numerous coats of Organic Danish Oil I Buffed it by hand..
The finished result is the best I can do. If anybody has any suggestions please feel free to say. I would be most interested.
I would love to achieve a gloss on most Projects.It was cut on the Scroll Saw from one of Carole Rothman's Patterns..The Bowl is made up of 4 rings and a Base cut at 28 Deg.Kind regards,Cliff.
