I'm pretty happy with it, a bit of scrap maple burl on a walnut base. Working on a few cool cutting boards and other misc stuff right now.

That's really gorgeous.

Some aquaintances have made speed bag platforms from scraps of wood they got at work,

Douglas fir



Mahogany species



Ipe

Both awesome. I wonder what the right order is when building a workshop... do you get a table saw first? Or just big benches and a mitre saw... I'll never be able to afford a giant planer but I can build a work-round with a router like the guy from Parks and Rec did.

Did your family do woodworking either of you? It's not an easy thing to jump right into.
