With thanks, and the occasional curse, to degoose, the master of cutting boards. You’ll see my two prototypes of his tumbling block design amid the others. All went well with those so I proceeded to prepare various wood species for many more beautiful boards.
I labored over the setup of the table saw and got the angle down to the exact degree – not .1 degree over or .1 degree under. Then I happily cut all of the stock I had p[repared. Then, when it was too late for any corrections, a trial fit for color comparisons and @#?&%#$. The angle was exact spot on, just off by ten degrees so the three pieces didn’t make a single block.
Grrrrr. So, I decided I had created yet another “design opportunity” and proceded to make these boards.
Now I’ll attempt to do the tumbling block design correctly. Didn’t someone talk about drinking twice and cutting once?
