« Part 1: The start... Part 2 of Mystery commission. series Part 3: Nearly done »

I took the glue up out of clamps today… a little longer than I usually leave a glue up…

Sanded and squared up two adjacent edges…

then cut grooves ..

And inlaid some camphor laurel strips…

Cut the other grooves and inlaid more strips,

The strips were cut on the table saw and ripped to width on the bandsaw..

Is this starting to look like something….

Cut to size and clamping the frame in place… biscuit joints and splined in the mitres…

More soon… Does this look familiar??

Not sure what it is but I like the clamping idea!

A Sudoku board??
No, I didn’t think so…
It would make a nice one though!!

I am guessing a Shogi board perhaps?

You will have to inlay four dots if so to make it a “true” board though.

It DOES appear to be one though – 9×9 with all squares the same color…...........

How ‘bout it?

I agree with Bob. It must be a Shogi board.

It’s an Aussie extended checker board used with those beer bottle caps Larry has.

It’s a new Aussie Tablet with large pixels, or a bar slate.

It’s really difficult to tell, perhaps if Larry would turn it over for folks in the Northern hemisphere we might have a chance recognize it.

OK Larry, folks in the Northern Hemisphere are going off to bed so, help them get a good night’ rest by letting us know what that bloody contraption is going to be.
Later, mate
