Just playing around with designs. I cut some Tasmanian Blackwood and some Silver Ash with a 70 and 80 degree bevel and glued them up alternatively from the centre and then cut and rolled to make a butcher block endgrain board. Mirrored but with a negative image! Nice for a small cheese board or for use at the bar. A little slippage in the glue up.. using Titebond III for the first time.. A little longer tack time.. The corners have been rounded.
In the background.. something I am doing more of…is a piece of timber I bookmatched from the small sections of logs that the neighbor gave me.. he was burning them and noticed the nice color of the heartwood.. I don’t know the type of timber.. hard to tell from the small sample. But it is definitely a hardwood,, Australian Native of some sort. And it burns well I am told..sacrilege !!
