« Part 3: Endgrain discolorization ..... solved. Part 4 of SPIRAL DESIGN series Part 5: A new wood contrast... Narra to Eucalyptus »

Have done today those little pieces to complete 7 sections. I have to select and replace previous wood because of brittleness being cut endgrain. I learned today that even a very hardwood cannot be trusted to retain its hardness when it is cut endgrain. There are some cracks along the line. Here is the picture how it looks today.

halfway now

and here is another…

halfway2

The lesson learned today…. The piece much be clamped firmly during cutting and filing.

Thanks for your inspirational comment.

David,
I agree
every line on straight path
never curves
never intersects
never ends
if there is an error
in line with the path.
thanks,

-- Bert
