« Part 4: 10... sanded ready for oiling... Part 5 of Boards. series Part 6: Can you glue end grain to long grain... »

I decided that it would not hurt to have a few extra… different designs.. so… here are a few more glue ups..

Then cut an oval out of the checker one… and did a second generation glue up on the two at the back.

Sanded and cut to finished shape the two second gen.. and glued up another..[sorry no pic] and cut it into a circle…this one was made with Queensland Maple with chevrons of Maple, Purple Heart and a stripe of Walnut…

The oil finish has been applied to nearly all the cheese boards… I will take some finished shots tomorrow… before they leave the workshop … and then next week at the opening of the Big Pineapple... where they are destined..

After being left deserted for quite a while, the new owner is giving it a refurb and reopening next Saturday… A heritage listed attraction just north of me…

I like the oval CB, it’s a nice change from the standard CB. The Big Pineapple looks like a lot of fun to go. Good Luck at the fair.

You are a master of the wavy board! Your “extra” boards are all winners.

I really like the light/dark round one- is that Maple and Walnut?

More cool stuff!

Man, when you get a bee in your bonnet, you really move out… don’t you?

You’re popping that stuff out faster than one can pop pills!

You’re on a roll! ... and you’re rolling!

Good stuff… should sell like hotcakes!

Those are great Larry.

The combination of multiple woods and the zip-zag pop the board nicely.

I love pineapples!
