A tribute to Larry’s Next step

Easy to make – just cut 30 degrees on the mitre and then 3 times with the fence. flip 2 of the strips and glue (biscuits might do the glueup some good, as its hard to clamp – will try next time).

Wood is Matai, Rimu and Almond

Sorry about the messy picture!

i am in the middle of too many things, as alway. this means that my workshop is full of half finished projects and when I get into it I stand there gazing for 30 minutes trying to figure out what I shuiold do next. eventually i give up and make a board :-)

Isn’t that a jump to the left and a step to the right?

Great board no matter which way you go though!

That’s cool, the way the stepped pieces seem to get narrower on the top? side. Nice job. I would like to hear how biscuits work on this. I also find a need to take a break and do a board. Overall they are easy, but SOMEONE is always showing a new way to make them interesting and causing me to stretch my brain as well.
Thanks, Robert

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

OttoH, you are right. its been like 25 years since I heard this song…

robert, two things –
one, make the roundover BEFORE cutting. its very hard to round over in the corners.
two, i would use biscuits on the second glueup to keep things from moving at least in one dimension. so just 2 biscuits on every side of the each strip, 8 biscuits overall. the biscuits can also help with the lateral movement as they swell. on the other hand its 16 slots… not sure i’ll do that.
