Learning... No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

I have been waiting with great anticipation for each and every episode of the blogs done by my LJ buddy Martyn. He is in my opinion “THE MASTER in pattern wood working! I aspire to one day be close to where is started. This is one of my first attempts in pattern woodworking. Let me know what you think,...I can take it!

It is made from (pallet wood) Ipe & Pine.

I like the design …Unusual combination of hard and soft woods…..Are you going to post more pictures when you finish the project ? The design is certainly worthy of being imitated : ) Keep up the good work : )
Here’s one that I made from Maple and Purpleheart , which is what I first thought that yours was made from.

Ok, Now saw it into more pieces…. say 30 degrees… flip them around…. and glue it back together again… book match it…. and make a box to go under it…. right Martyn?

Edit: OK, I looked at the rest of your work…. you have plenty of talent.

Yes, definitely. Its good. You have been busy. Lovely palllets you have out there. Keep it up mate.

Now for the next one if you make two of these( one the negative of the other) and then slice them at 90° (or any angle you choose) to the stripes, mix and match, the fun really starts. That basically what my stuff is mate.

As for being the master. Don’t overlook deGoose, Sinister and all those other guys. They do stunning work and were here way before me.

Nice job and good choice of contrasting wood. I particularly like it because it is symmetrical. I like balance in a piece. Free wood is a good thing, too!
