« Part 7: Days 7 and 8 Part 8 of 150 [Cutting] Boards by the end of September. series Part 9: Day10 »

Just a quick one.,., only spent a little time in the workshop today being Sunday
More of a peak at what I tried to get done today.

Two endgrain boards glued and clamped.. one sanded.
Got a few ideas floated.. mainly using Patrons Jig.
Played around with the shapes cut on the jig.,. by flipping the piece after each cut I changed the shape a little and found that putting side by side I ended up with a ring,,

Some other curves that will be made into serving trays or bread boards..
Tassie Blackwood and Silver Ash combo .. kinda looks rounded.

1 Wild Cherry

and 1 Camphor Laurel.
Finally got the curved woven board glued up and then cut it into a circle that I will inset .. similar to the circle of PH into the TB.,, into a square of TB.

NB none of these projects are anyway near finished so they will not be counted until I have them nearer to being finished.

lookin’ real good , larry .
glad you got some ” play time ” .

some of the best ideas ,
come from ” talking ” ,
with the wood ,
not from ” making ” it happen .

do all ‘roos have purses ?
or do some of them have tool belts ?

That ring shaped one – maybe you can size it and market it to hold cheeses – then get into some turning for an inset bowl to hold the crackers. When I saw it, I thought “cheese ring”. But then, maybe it’s getting near lunch time so it’s natural.

Some great designs. I don’t know that they could be all used for the purpose that it was intended.

Gosh Larry, you’ll be a third done in a few days. You might have time to make another couple hundred ;-))

Assuming you are selling all these boards you will soon have quite a cash surplus to buy more materials with to make more boards with….........................? I especially liked the next to last curved pattern.
