« Part 4: Assembling the jig Part 5 of Spirals series Part 6: We are not finished yet. »

Just a quick peak at what I got up to today when I was not checking the hundreds of emails from all the LJs who commented on my last few posts.. Thank you very much.. I did not realize how much of my daily routine now revolves around this site.. Addictive…
I also had time to drive the twenty odd miles into the big smoke..Brisbane and go shopping at Carba-tec..I know I have all the fun..
A coupla new router bits..some very expensive toggle clamps [for a new jig to make the sunburst design that Patron aka David makes so effortlessly] and enough lazy bearings to make a heap of LLs on order. As well as a new toy called a ‘bevel box.’. more on that in a later blog.?
My first choice..
Ok second choice new guinea rosewood and purple heart with 3/32” accent stripes of silver ash.

Second pic is made from the off cuts of the LL in the first pic sans stripes.. not sure If I will put them in.. what do you think?

Third pic is just some …...this time you guess..?? tell me what you think the LL is made of…also thought that an accent stripe of you know… PH..

again what do you think of that combo?

This a shot with some turps on to bring out the grain and color to help you figure it out [PUN intended].Last one is just a silly Idea I had. Again opinions welcome!

The SA accent stripe in the first pic looks sharp. I’d vote for putting it in the other one as well. PH accent stripe in the LL of the two lighter woods ( SA and Rosewwod?) would really set it off! and WOW on the “silly idea” Give it a go!!

Hmmmmm….......The Silver Ash inserts really helps to superimpose the Rosewood and PH.

Pic-5 …This might sound wierd but how about reverseing the centre disk…..flip it over…..jmho.

Turps sure brings out the grain…...cool.

No guess as to the type of wood, but I really like your “silly idea” in your last pic.

I like the stripes and the “silly idea”, what do you do with the center? do they always meet close enough to form a tight center, or do you have to use a plug?
also , are the stripes cut with the jig or are they bent?
keep up the great work!!!

The strips do make the gluing more difficult, I’m sure of that. But, the affect of the wood contrasts is distinctive and wonderful. My preference would be to include the strips and then continue that pattern in the other parts of the work such as, legs, sides, etc… Nice…..... no, gorgeous work!

Goose, Check the gears on my M7 clock. Note the maple stripes that I included in the gear spokes. I continued that theme is the frame of the clock, albeit, as reversed color. Repetition in art is common and works! Max

I cut the first arc and then using the off cut as a caul glue the fine stripe to the first cut. THese stripes are only 3/32” and fairly flexible.
Then cut the second arc after the glue dries.. this maintains the integrity of the segment

Thanks for that, very interesting.
Definitely a project I will keep in mind for when I have a band saw.
I admire your ingenuity.

This is a very neat project . I can hardly wait to follow your ideas to a “susan” of my own.
Thanks for taking time to guide us through the technique.
