I am still in the process of setting up the stage for the video presentation of routing out the Chip and Dip Lazy Larry in Silky Oak.. [lacewood for our American cousins]..

But in a moment of inspiration, sitting in the Inspirational Chair… enjoying some cool aid…. read XXXX … I thought Why not a tighter weave…this is what I came up with.. a weave of Tasmanian Blackwood… with Silver Ash and Purple Heart accents…

The last part of the slideshow has a few other bits and bobs I am currently working on..

Hi Larry,

Getting pretty fancy with the slide shows, huh?

Nice job.

Fancy video – and funky music!

I think you should use some James Brown in your next one.

Very nice Larry…..You are really getting slick with the video and music. You will be making movies for the theatres before you know it. I have enough trouble just using my still picture camera.

Ooooh, yeah, I like it! A lot!!!
This looks more like a real weave.
Great video work, too!

I just glued up my strips today… and just happen to have done them in two different woods.
