With the last show of the year rapidly approaching, I decided to have something different as a front-and-center display. So my employee and I made 4 regular chaos boards and then while brainstorming we came up with the idea to change the name to patchwork boards and add some long pieces to make them look somewhat like a patchwork quilt. Two were made with maple long pieces which tend to blend into the overall look of the board, one was made with cherry long pieces which also tended to blend in with the look of the board and the last used walnut for long pieces which made the board pop. Everything is end grain, the woods are hard maple, mahogany, cherry and walnut, the glue is TiteBond III, they are 2” thick and 12×18 or 13×19 and they take a lot of extra work to assemble.
I don’t know if they will sell but they will sure add a level of difference at the show. I have one, not pictured, we actually counted the number of individual pieces for a contest. Each guess will cost $1.00, which will go to the Salvation Army, and the person who guesses the exact number will receive $50.00.
