Part 1: Make a start...

11-05-2011 10:28 PM by degoose | 18 comments »

Today, as I make my way out to the workshop, ideas are flying around… having looked at the information on lamination design that Scott sent….wow… so many new thoughts are spinning through my head… I had an inkling as to how it was done… but now the technical part is explained… So, to the shed…..rip, glue, crosscut, glue, crosscut at a different angle and glue again… then sand, sand, and sand some more… These three boards were made us...

Part 3: Cutting for the second time...

11-07-2011 01:02 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

Out of the clamps… and cut at 25 degrees… [through the centre of each chevron going down from left to right…] each other piece rotated end for end… For those who can not picture this… there will be a video forthcoming.. by the end of the week I hope… And now back in clamps for the day… out tomorrow and I will see if this goes to the third gen… Stay tuned…By the way… timbers used Queensland Maple and Purple Heart…

Part 4: The third cut is the weirdest....

11-07-2011 11:59 AM by degoose | 17 comments »

Squared off the top…. here is the third cut…Now rotate every other piece… And line up the pieces… A quick border… just a few offcuts to frame the design… The piece on the right is cut parallel and moved over to the other end for the glue up… this make both ends fit the clamps better.. That was easy hey???

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…

Part 7: Same but different..

11-13-2011 02:26 PM by degoose | 10 comments »

I love the way the antique pine shines… Again not finished …. New Guinea Rosewood with Purple Heart and Antique Hoop Pine Chevrons… and the one on the left is Silky Oak aka LaceWood with single stripes of Purple Heart…You may also notice that I have altered the width of cuts… something a little different…

Part 8: Cutting on the down angle..

11-21-2011 02:52 PM by degoose | 16 comments »

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…

In my last post In the round the second pic shows a single stripe .. double chevron [second gen] ..This blog will show in part how this was done… To start make two grooves on both faces of a board… in this case virgin hoop pine…[virgin meaning naturally grown… not plantation timber] Inlay two different timbers… in this case purple heart And narra [new guinea rosewood]This is instead of one strip of timber between two others…Shown end on… I...

Part 10: The teaser...

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…

Part 11: MC Escher tessellations...

07-24-2014 07:44 AM by degoose | 18 comments »

Recently I was sent a link to Instructables.com… They made an end grain tessellated chopping board… cut with a 400 W laser… My laser is only 80 W so I cut some thinner timber…long grain Rosewood actually… Each lizard fits into the adjacent one… They are almost impossible to glue individually… so put them together dry… used masking tape on the back and smeared glue all over… scraped it across and into the...
