« Part 2: Tight weave... Part 3 of Off Kilter.. series no next part

Here is another sneak peek of the slanted tight weave.. After the glue up, the board was sanded on the drum sander, cut into a circle on the bandsaw, chamfered the edges and just to give you a look at the color… I used a little turps…

Further work on this piece will include more sanding and possibly using the Torque Workcentre to route out a dish in the centre.. then I will mount it on a Lazy Susan cast aluminium bearing..

this one looks awesome
i love how the darker accent strip (PH?) makes the white strip look offset
i like the diamond pattern too, instead of just square

Really cool Larry. I am really amazed and impressed at how far you have taken these designs. A very good and wise reason to specialize, especially since you have such a great talent for developing these geometrical patterns and techniques to produce them. I have no doubt that you will continue to ‘push the envelope’ with these great cutting boards. I would be very proud if I could do work like that.

Larry my good man, you are unequaled in the art of board making, and I am unequaled at destroying them, Usually on the last pass thru the planer. I’m trying to put one back together now, it’s like putting a meat puzzle together. Beautiful boards buddy.

I too love the dark accent pieces you added. Makes the whole project look 3D. I can see folks running their hands across it just to see if it is flat or actually woven. Very Cool!!

Beautiful Work, Larry!! This one has a “warm” feel to it that’s very appealing…
