Larry, with your insightfulness and ingenuity it does not surprise me at all that you would find a different variation. These look pretty good.

These are great Larry. Your end grain is awesome. I knew the pros could take the originals to a whole new level of creativity.

Really neat patterns! Lee is right, I think it’s time to get my white jacket out, the one with the extra long sleeves that tie in the back . . .

So, you gonn’a share that Rx or just keep it to yourself?

The first one gives an interesting ‘two for one’ with varying line thicknesses but I like the staggered effect in the third one best. The book matched grain patterns in this last one are particularly impressive.

Larry, you’re always coming up with beautiful designs. You’re very creative and do great work.

Very cool Larry, unique pattern, and beautiful wood. I don’t know how you keep out doing yourself, you must dream new concepts in your sleep.
