« Part 1: Ripping the stock. Part 2 of Open weave Lazy Larry series Part 3: Thin strip ripping... »

The open weave Lazy Larry is going through some design changes… already… I have decided to use Purple Heart and Silver Ash for the accents… while still maintaining the Huon Pine for the background…

The timber is being milled…

The purple heart…...

and the Silver Ash….

Milling will be completed tomorrow as I am off to Toowoomba this morning with Aaron….. to do a demonstration on the TWC for the Toowoomba woodworkers club…

Getting to be quite the jetsetter …..hey….

More soon…

It looks it will be very nice and expensive project. Have a good time in Toowoomba, Larry.

It will be expensive indeed. $12/bf for the purple heart in my neighbourhood.

Have a nice trip to Toowoomba.
I could not help it but to google the city name. It is an intersting city.

Just curious as to the design modification regarding the wood swap?

Maybe you’ll provide a quick pointer or two on wood selection (contrasting colors, grain patterns/direction, etc.)?

Contrasting wood = contrasting wood… makes no difference to me what kind…

I’m just interested in how the wood is USED… LOL
