« Part 7: Same but different.. Part 8 of Next Generation Cheese boards... series Part 9: Alternating the stripe. »

Instead of cutting perpendicular to the down chevron L to R… I cut down almost parallel to the other chevron R to L..

This give a totally different pattern..

As this was a test it will be rather small.. so it will have a frame around it.. tomorrow…

The variation turned out extra well. All LJ’s must be tempted to have a go after seeing your boards. Great
looking pattern.

Larry, That looks like the traces of one’s heartbeat on an electrocardiogram (sp?).
You could call it “Lifeline” or somesuch!

Larry, This looks like the same generation you’ve been working on.

Nice work though.

For being lazy, you sure do get a lot done!

Preciseness in cutting the angles is the key factor in the success of projects like these, there is no room for any tiny mistake and you managed to hit the targate right in the centre.You are the king of precision, Larry.
