Boards for the Blacker Serving Table

I drove down to Watsonville today, to Jackel Enterprises, which it the local specialty lumberyard.  I picked up three 7′ 4/4 Sapele boards.  All were at least 12″ wide — this is a great thing about Sapele, you can get nice wide quarter sawn boards.  Most boards in the stack were around 9″, but in the top 3 layers there were these three nice wide boards.  One will cover the skirts and stretchers, one should make up the top, which leaves one to take care of any screwups.  If it all goes smoothly, I’ll make a batch of cutting boards or something.

Wide Sapele - the one on the left was 13" I think, the one on the right was over 15"

Wide Sapele – the one on the left was a bit over  13″, the one on the right was over 15″
