Just a few recent boards. I’ve come late to the realization that the strips that generally are made into an end grain board by turning them on their edges – make lovely patterns for a face grain board. First photo is evidence of that little fact. So instead of using those odd number of strips that make your end grain board too long – lay them on their faces and have a nice board with the same pattern. The first board is seven strips from a project where my math skills went to sleep and I over estimated the number of strips needed – so I made lemonade. Most of the left overs I generally have would only make a small board that would be what I’d call the “one apple/orange board”. But still I like the effect. I have even thought that it might make a nice duo of boards to have an end grain and a face grain board as a set with the same pattern. It’s a thought.
The other three boards are just some of the ones that I like the best in my latest batch.
Thanks for looking.
