It has been quite a while since I’ve posted, due to work and health issues. My sister-in-law wanted a letter V to hang on her wall. She wanted Times New Roman and liked the color variation she had seen in my bandsaw boxes. This is six inches tall, made from laminating up several half-inch wide strips. This was a quick project and a chance to use my new bandsaw, which worked really well. This finish is danish oil with lacquer.
Now my wife wants a letter D in a checkerboard pattern. I don’t own a scroll saw, so I’m contemplating the best way to approach cutting out the inside space. I might manage it with my jigsaw. I also thought about cutting through the left side of the D where the top and bottom curves meet, then patching with a contrasting spline. But, that would spoil the checkerboard effect. Does anyone have any suggestions?
