Bookmatched Sets

We purchased this wood a couple of years ago
 from a northern Vancouver Island bowl turner. 
He was selling 20 blocks, sealed in bees wax for 30 years,
 all with amazing rare and unique figures. 
We weren’t sure what we wanted to make with the blocks then, 
but we couldn’t resist, so we bought them all and just set them aside until now.
Most of these very beautiful maple blocks lent themselves 
to bookmatched sets.
Because most of the blocks are quite thick we decided
 to cut them into sequential slices of book matched figures.
Whether purchased for yourself or as gifts, they will be treasured.
 Here are two sets of bookmatched serving boards
 made from these rare blocks.
