I got some good suggestions in my last post about what to do with this block that I glued up from mostly reclaimed red oak pallet wood: One of the ideas I liked best was an end grain cutting board. I realized I had pics of each side of the block, so I made a block in SketchUp of the same dimensions, then slapped on textures from those pictures. It looked like this: Now I could cut that up by drawing lines at the locations where I wanted the cuts, then using the push/pull tool t...

The material is tiger maple and wenge. The top...
Not far south of my ancestral homeland (one of them anyhow, as Americans tend to be from lots of places) on the French side of the English Channel – near the Blanchard Straights in fact, you’ll find Mont Saint Michel, a tidal penninsula on the Breton/Norman border. Constructed under, as well as commissioned by ancestors of mine (the Dukes of Normandy – future kings of England – and their forefathers, I feel a connection to the island, turned tidal penninsula, turned...
I should know better… yet I’m sitting here anyway, browsing through a gazillion web pages – mostly google image serches, trying to find the “right” model for my Sketchup table. Trolling through virtual albums of places I’ve visited and lived. Places that resonate with me.
