« Part 1: APPETIZER ! Part 2 of thank you sam shakouri series no next part

some of you may have seen this bowl by sam shakouri ,
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27141
and my interpretation of it ,

well here is how i did mine , it’s a little different than sams ,
in the method ,he will show his as he sees fit ,
thats my story , and i’m sticking to it !
so here is how i did it .
.
i start with two boards of opposite colors ,
here curly maple and black walnut .
cut them both identical ,
and sticky tape them together .
MARK A HASH MARK ON THE ENDS , AND AN ARROW TO EACH OTHER ,
THIS KEEPS EVERYTHING ALIGNED THROUGH OUT .

.
drill holes where you like , it helps to have plug cutters to match the drill size .
pro.woodworker.com , plug cutters .

.
cut what ever plugs that fit the holes ,
i used all my exotic colors just for fun ,
and mixed them across both boards ,
so they don’t land in the same hole in both boards .
i used a brush to get glue into the sides of all the holes ,
and the edjes of all the plugs , bang them in .
sand all surfaces flat .
re-tape both boards together ,making sure they are
aligned exactly .
in this picture , you will notice that the white board has some rough lines on it ,
this is a maybe cut line . THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO CUT THRU THE PLUGS
IN THEIR CENTER , SO THE KERF RE-ALIGNS and is not offset or at an angle .
MAKE YOUR BANDSAW CUTS SMOOTH , no jiggling around , it shows up in the glue-up .

.
glue the opposite parts together , making sure the ends are flush ,
sand , and re-tape and crosscut same as before , and switch pieces again and glue .
this time make sure the sides are flush . and trim all the edges and ends in sequence to both boards ,
so they are still identical .

.
re-saw your boards and sand to same thickness ,
and heres what you get .

.
the way you do your cuts , and the plug layout is totaly up to you ,
you will always get a koliedescope effect .
thank you for looking , happy nuts to you , enjoy !

and THANK YOU , SAM , for letting me use this idea of yours .

i spent the day working on what to do with these ,
but got burned out , and i have to work tomorrow ,
so i just posted this for now .

Awesome project, how thick are the boards after the final resaw? What is the biggest plug cutter you used? very cool idea.

Oh Good Lord, what have you done here? That is just amazing! I really like the circles that look transparent but I also like the red and white ones. Now I’m thinking you need to make a Christmas board. What about making a board with red and white peppermint candies and candy canes? I know you can do it. I hope I got you thinking about this and I hope you try it.

David: You are amazing. You see between the lines. It must be the Picasso effect acting up again.

David, that is so cool. It seems so simple (in concept) now. You had me wondering with this one.
