At what point do you start to be cognizant of grain patterns or grain direction. Are you such a perfectionist that you always pay attention to grain. Do you excuse grain pattern for the sake of saving dollars in waisted materials . Many times when you are doing a 3-D project, like a cutting board in 3-D, grain becomes very important. A stepping block pattern is a good example where you want the grain to be perpendicular to each other . Good, better, best, never let it rest. Always let your Good be Better and your Better Best.
-- Good, Better, Best--Never let it rest---Always make your Good be Better & your Better Best
