Well, this turned out kinda like an abstract painting from the 70’s…

It started out as stripes.. cut for chevrons and cut one again in the opposite direction… then cut into an oval..

Not quite finished but you get the idea..

And here is a small sample of what is happening in the workshop at the moment…

This will be a sushi board.. need to drill a hole..

This Purple Heart board with Hoop Pine stripes is off to Saudi Arabia…

A small chevron board… Jarrah, PH and Huon Pine..

More intitial glue ups…

These will be 2nd and 3rd generation boards when they are finished…

I really like the abstract board.
I look forward to the multi-gen boards.

I remember (I think I remember) seeing something like that first one back in my “Hippy” days.

It looks like a maze. I keep wanting to follow the pattern.

Larry: I assume that the reasons you glueups are angled and not straight is because you plan on cutting those boards at an angle.

Looks like you need that big pot of glue Larry. Nice work on the boards.

Geez Larry, seems like everyday there are new boards coming out of your shop. How boards a day do you start or even finish (approximatly)? I am always amazed at your creations. Hows the Etsy shop going?

Now if you have any problem, Larry, ask Snookie.

That “abstract board” looks very different. It does look great though.
The purple heart one will be fantastic when done.

Nice boards there Larry, I’ve been making a couple too. A year ago I thought cutting boards….
how boring. But after making a few I really enjoy making them, and I think about all the great diffrent
designs. And I see your shop is full of great looking works under construction. Keep the good work
up mister!!!!!!

It’s getting hard to keep current with your designs, Larry.

Very nice work.
