« Part 1: Dry fit. Part 2 of Double Step ala SPalm series Part 3: Another one...one year later... »

Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures of the actual glue up..
Which by the way was a real bugger…
I used the standard two fixed and two loose cauls but had a lot of slippage …
I did manage to remember to take these of the board just out of clamps and on the TWC for flattening … using the 55 mm surfacing cutter bit in the router…..

These are after the board had been squared on the table saw… using the Incra Mitre express to square the ends…

Looking not too shabby…even with all the mistakes…

You don’t have to look too hard to see where the slippage is ….I think it adds character… lol

A little bit more burnishing with finer sand paper and several coats of mineral oil and it will be ready to post as a finished project…

That is one fine board, Larry.
The optical illusion is really apparent!

It’s a bugger fo sho.
I really wanted to see your gluing strategy. All those little points really like to slide around.

You done good, Larry.
Looks great.

You are indeed a slippery critter, as soon as you glance at it, the illusion carries your eye away. Dazzle them with design, baffle them with BS…........always works, Larry. I don’t think you slipped up the least little bit, your illusion has allowed you to escape criticism…..............better than double D…......that’s 3D….......(-:

I am not going to even try to find any evidence of slippage – too much work! That is going to be a great looking board.

Man, Larry! Between you and Martyn, I can’t pass the eye charts at DMV. Do you guys ever think about what you are doing to our optic lobes? lol
