ok another fantastic swap has ended. i was very lucky and happy to get duckmilk as my recipient. for my main project i gave him two burger/steak serving boards. the wood was paduak with handles made from cocobolo. kinda became my trademark wood. the handles are attached withe hand made dominos of maple. i included two ss cups for condiments along with a basket for fries and a slate plate on the bottom. also made a combo pizza slicer/server/cutter also from tulip wood. i laser engraved his name and year. for bonus gifts i made a set of shredders and a pig tale turner made from tulip wood. also threw in a bottle opener, kind of a tradition now, made from stabilized birch from my good friend dave p. my logo lasered on a wood coin set into the bottom. of course there was the "beer" !
doing the layout.
the template i used to router out the boards.
boards ready for 5 coats of GF ARM R SEAL. i put rubber feet on the bottom. all in all this was the best swap ever with lots of fantastic projects delivered by all. i highly recommend you join us next year. i gaurantee ill be back.
working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.
