« Part 9: Alternating the stripe. Part 10 of Next Generation Cheese boards... series Part 11: MC Escher tessellations... »

From the last post you would have seen the teaser…
Here it is all glued up and marked for cutting into an oval… I also used a little turpentine to enhance the colour and grain…
I think the choice of Queensland Red Cedar [toona australis] certainly brings out the angularity of the design…

It looks like fractured stone from deep within the earths core. I love the layered grain.

Now cut that out!

(Into an oval that is!)

On a scale of one to ten, that’s a solid eleven, Larry.

Nah, any fool can tell that Larry took the hide from a croc he wrestled with, and glued it to a piece of wood.

Nice try Larry, but we’re smarter than that here at LJ’s.

Since you are alive to tell the story, I assume you won the match. I assume the endeavor took considerable training, and prep with some of the by products of your beer cap projects….......

PS…..Do you drink the beer immediately after removing the cap, or do you cork it and keep it in that cute little refrigerator you got there at the factory….......or put it out as a treat for the roos?

PPS… crocs have bad breath?.......and if so, which are worse, the salties or the freshies?
