« Part 6: Can you glue end grain to long grain... Part 7 of Boards. series Part 8: Big Pineapple Farmers Market. »

Yesterday I was a little busy…. I ripped and glued up some blanks for some boards…no pics but they were just simple laminations…

Today when the glue was set I took them out of the clamps and made the secondary cuts and got ready for the next glue up…

Here are a few Camphor Laurel end grain boards..

Not glued up yet..

A smaller version to go as a pair… maybe…

Can’t wait for the glue up… and sanding… then a coat of oil to pop this magnificent grain…

This weave board is going to be larger than usual…

And one with a little curve section for fun…

That camphor laurel grain is already spectacular without finish. Looking forward to seeing it come to life once your finished with it.

Interesting to see green wood. Also very much like the curved work, Larry.
