I wanted to show you a custom board I finished and shipped this week. Sometimes when I pull out my lumber to begin making a new piece I can tell that the wood is beautiful, this time it turned out more beautiful than I initially thought. Walnut has ever rick color.
The customer wanted a large board made from walnut to use in his kitchen. This is a custom size board, 20 x 30 inch and made using American Walnut. I am not sure exactly how they plan to use the board other than he mentioned that he does a lot of baking.
Since he lives in California, it will take 3-4 days before FedEx delivers the board, I sure hope he likes it!
As a gift with every board I send a free tin of Wood Conditioner. My Wood Conditioner is homemade combining a mixture of food-grade mineral oil and pure beeswax. It will help you maintain the finish on your boards, reviving, condition and help protect your boards from moisture and drying out. To learn more, visit my Wood Conditioner page.
Enjoy your afternoon! 🙂

He’ll love it Michael—just as I love mine! You are not only greatly talented but you have a keen innate ability with the wood which makes for the true beauty, lurking within, to be coaxed out with the end result being beautiful craftsmanship—
Blessings Michael–and happy wood 🙂
good evening Julie!! Thank you so much 🙂
Who wouldn’t like that board Michael? Walnut is a beautiful wood!
thank you Allen, I love working with walnut 🙂
Outstanding 😉 What a treasure! Of course your customer will like it, Michael. That walnut would be beautiful in a long, thin shape to hold a baguette.
Do you want any Hibiscus moscheutos seeds? I collected some a few days ago.
thank you so much Elizabeth! 🙂 I make a baguette board, 7 inches wide and 18-19 inches long with a handle, I’ll see if I can find a picture. Thank you but my mother in law gave be an envelope full of hibiscus seeds last week but she had know idea what color they are. I love all of you garden pictures especially all the ferns! 🙂
