Looks good to me. I second the cherry strips – it adds a little pop to the boards.

Nice job. They are fun to make. You can check mine out in my gallery. I made one with padauk, one with purpleheart and one with walnut strips. The padauk is by far my favorite. The purpleheart was too hard to manipulate and the walnut you have to be right up close to see it.

Man I don’t know how you guys do it. When I get drunk and go into the shop, some disastrous things happen, I’m afraid I will lose a finger or two. Nice work all the same.

Have your say...
