« Part 2: A blank and two bowls... Part 3 of If you knew Sushi.... series Part 4: Two handles, two curves.. »

I thought that a maching set of two sushi boards would be nice.

After selecting a nice board of Queensland Maple… I cut 2 blanks…and then using the curve cutting jig on the bandsaw …. I cut an asymmetrical curve across each board.

2 stipes of Purple Heart and 1 stripe of Camphor Laurel were captured and glued between the two halves.

A few hours in clamps.

And then the whole lot were sanded and the ends cut..

More on how the ends were cut and how the handles were made… next time..a set of four…. until then thanks for dropping by..

I knew a Susie, but she wasn’t the type you’d bring home to meet Mom. So I just let it slide.
They’e coming along nicely, the boards, I mean. You’re making me really hungry for some sushi,
Larry! :D

I’ve had Sushi! There was some hot wasabi! Does the clamp time depend on the thickness of the thin pieces you are gluing together?
