Wow David these are cool . By cut and switch do you mean there are two layers and you switch the different woods?

i don’t work with veneer , it’s way to thin for me .
all my work is real wood ,
and cut with the bandsaw , freehand .
some i make thick , and resaw into multiples .

in the 1st picture bottom row ,
block # 2 and block # 5 look to be the same ,
just opposite colors and # 5 is turned .
some may even be turned over ,
so as to look random .

Thanks patron, I like your style. The technique you use will definitely be used in a few projects I have on my list.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the workshop again.

The possibilities are limited only by the imagination! Very cool…
The first one unsettles me somehow. It’s so random, I’m having a hard time figuring out whether I like it or not. I think I like it, but then I’m not sure…? It must be good, because real artistic work, if nothing else, generates a response from the viewer, positive or negative…(Maybe I’m trying to imagine a bar top made that way, and it scares me!!)
Lots of great ideas coming out of New Mexico, that’s for sure. Thank you for sharing them with all of us, David, they’re inspirational!

miles – how big are your boards ?
jim and dan -my project ” joe the movie ” , shows how this is done ,
either stickie tape ,
or some allignment/holding jig
to cut the parts .
after glue up ,
they all need to be recut to square to stack together .

dont mix other parts , they only fit with their mates .

David,
The tow two remind me of Paul Wearing illustrations. You should frame those and hang them on a wall!

Beautiful work, David.
Moving the circles and changing direction gives such an interesting pattern.
Keep ‘em coming.
