« Part 4: The third cut is the weirdest.... Part 5 of Next Generation Cheese boards... series Part 6: Another.. »

This post documents the step by step in creating a 2nd generation board..

Striped board… cut at 50 degrees.

Flip every second piece left to right…

After glueing up the chevron pattern… cut through each down facing [right to left] stripe… at the centre at 25 degrees…

Now flip every other piece end for end and glue up again…

Now cut to shape…

In this case the one on the right…

Do you walk Sideways…

... backwards…?

Yes, it ALL makes sense… and doesn’t seem to be very hard to do…


It sure does a number on ones Brain trying to follow & visualize results from step to step to step… etc.

I’m sure glad you are doing such a GREAT job of keeping it ALL together! LOL

Thank you very mcuh…

Hey Larry!

Another idea just popped into my head!

Resaw & Slice’em up… and make Tambour out of some of it… for maybe Bread Boxes, Fancy small Boxes, etc.

Yeah!!!!!! I think it finally sunk into my thick skull – that’s scary that I understand Larry’s crazy cool mind.

Larry Thank You so much for sharing your technique with us. I think that this whole journey was started by WoodMosaics- if my memory serves me correctly.
