« Part 2: First glue up... Part 3 of Next Generation Cheese boards... series Part 4: The third cut is the weirdest.... »

Out of the clamps… and cut at 25 degrees… [through the centre of each chevron going down from left to right…] each other piece rotated end for end…

For those who can not picture this… there will be a video forthcoming.. by the end of the week I hope…

And now back in clamps for the day… out tomorrow and I will see if this goes to the third gen…

Stay tuned…
By the way… timbers used Queensland Maple and Purple Heart…

I checked out the woodturnerpro website. Looks like pretty impressive software.

I would be interested in a review after you go through this …

The pattern and the Queensland Maple give it a three D effect. I will have to give this type of pattern a try when I get back in the shop.

These things are as good as pot, legal, and since they last a lifetime, much cheaper too. :)

I can’t imagine what the 3rd generation might be. I a little lost at this point. It looks great right now.

Nice work.
It is surprising how much lumber each generation eats up.
Have you noticed this?

Man O Man… How about 3D Generation?!

Using wood to provide “shading” takes it into the 3D arena!

It looks like you’re literally going up & down all over the board!

You need to post the cutting pictures so we can see how this was cut.

Great design

Larry, who knew that cutting the cheese could be so visually pleasing as well. :-)
