no previous part Part 1 of Open weave Lazy Larry series Part 2: Design changes already... »

I am about to make an open weave Lazy Larry…similar to this one.

I have ripped some Tasmanian Blackwood into the required strips….. these are just over 600 mm long and 50 mm by 20 mm

For our American cousins… 2 feet long and 2 inch by 3/4 inch..

Tomorrow I will be ripping some thin stripes of Huon Pine and Tasmanian Blackwood to make the accents… Strips will be only 3 mm thick [ 1/8 inch]

The background will be Huon Pine….. cut into 50 mm squares…

This is not a set class but I will be pointing out some tips and tricks to make the build easier… at least for me…so if you want, you can come along for the journey…

A quick question Larry. With your material dimensions above, I’m assuming that the final thickness of this board will be slightly under 3/4”, is this correct? Thanks.
