Most of the ‘Woven boards’ I have seen have a dark weave and a light background so me always being different..reverse the order ..dark [purpleheart] background and light [silver ash ] weave with accents in both timbers.
I simply love these boards and am forever grateful to the LJ site and the LJer’s who posted them many moons ago. I was destined to log in and see them.
This is the finished board from the how to glue up blog and RRGR I hope you can’t see the 1/4 inch gap.

Whoa!!! So cool!

The reversal in thought process has led to a great board. I had to stop and look at it for a few to work out the details. Very inspiring.

Larry, this is a nice board. Of course, I would not expect you do simply follow down the same path that everyone else does. You just had to do something different!! :) I have got to try one of these. It looks like an interesting and challenging project.

I admit that in the last few hours I have delved into the archives and have seen several examples of the lighter weave and darker background.. I had not seen these before and stand corrected that I am not being different in this after all.

Now theres a challenge for you Degoose. Laminate your boards with dark on one side and light on the other and then you would truly have a reversable board. A banding strips around the board would hide the laminations.
