Walnut & Maple.
TBIII glue, Finished with 3 coats of Rustin’s Danish oil.
I really like this simple design, so i am working now on a batch of three, two in end grain form, and one in long grain form.
It is a bit hard to see that in pictures, but the grain of the wood is countinueus throughout the board.
I prefer the bevel edges (made on the table saw) much more than routed rounded edges, for several reasons:
1. As a thumb rule, whenever I have the option to choose between the table saw and the router – ill go with the table saw. (Important: I am talking about sliding table saw, Format or equivilant. I never understood the sense in using a cabinet saw)
2. The bevel serves as a handle. it is much easier to implement and to finish.
3. It gives me the opportunity to design and to make decisions on the spot, while processing, and to fix if needed. For a few minutes, I feel like a real artist…
4. The corner, where the bevels meet, is always unique and appealing.
5. The shiny highlight at the corner is really neat. usually its not seen when the edge is rounded.
Thanks for watching.
-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.
