Here is my first completed project-it gave me some exposure to various tools on the SS I recently purchased and was overall a good learning experience. I'd like your critical input on the result.
The wife had brought some German breakfast boards with her when she moved over and they have been with us for 20 years. They served us well but we broke one or two, and it was time for a replacement.
I got a block of curly maple which was resawn down, table sawed to size, sanded for a couple days, finally burnishing and sealed.
i think the result is pretty good-the "curly" 3D wave in this wood is really neat to see-then run your hand over and find no wave at all.
I had some leftover material, so made a bunch of drink coasters as well.
