This is a perfect example of too much time on my hands and too much imagination. I laminated 2 – 24” boards consisting of walnut, oak, butternut and beetle kill pine. The boards were duplicates with the exception of wood placement.
Each board was 24” x 6 1/4 ” x nearly an inch thick. The thickness was necessary because of anticipated planing them 3 or 4 times. Each board ended up just under 3/4” when finished.
As you can see there was an awful lot of glueing, plenty of sawing on the band saw as well as the table saw. The squiggly cuts were made on the band saw and all of the cross cuts were cut on the table saw.
They are finished with mineral oil/beeswax finish. It seemed quite a chore but I managed to squeeze the mixture into the hole that accepts the are as well as the groove for the wire. I did that in my feeble attempt to attain some life span for a vulnerable item.
