So some time ago I posted my Escher cutting boards. I promised a blog on how I made them.
I hesitated to write this blog because of the time involved and that my blog will in no way come close to the well laid out blogs done by some of our more talented members.
Of course I never would have attempted this project before I was inspired by this guy:
who puts out incredible blogs like this one
Martyn took a line drawing from thought to art and I read every line.
I stood on their shoulders and made this
It all started as slats
I took the slats and glued them together like this
Once they were re-cut into three pieces I glued them up in columns around a piece of cherry that was cut in a triangle.
I glued them up like this
After the glue had cured I sanded the faces flat in a tool I made to send them through the drum sander.
All that was left to do was to cross cut the columns into 1.25” pieces. I took the pieces and flipped every other one over to look like this
And the rest was just gluing and sanding.
I know that others have made similar boards. I like looking at all of them.
I love the fact that there are so many very talented folks on this web site, and a lot of them spend their valuable time sharing of themselves. I dedicate this blog to them, for without them this site would not be what it is. I would never have attempted this without their inspiration. My blog is not close to complete as the work I have seen here, but I am running out of time to edit this. I will get back on and answer your questions as I get a chance. I am hoping to have some time this weekend.
Right now it’s time for bed. Good night all.
Thanks for your time and sharing your knowledge with all of us.
I am updating this blog to add a picture of a sketch up that I made to assist others who want to build this board.
