She’s a real beauty, DL. Nice, tight glue ups.

Don it was a struggle for that glue up. This is the board I thought about building a trebuchet to get it to hit the floor at a high velocity. But it turned out okay so maybe next time on building some medieval siege devices.

Thank you rivers.

VERY NICE, DL. A unique pattern. Like Candy said, glad it survived. I can imagine the frustration.

Yeah I’m glad it came out okay but kind of sad since I really wanted to build a project to destroy other projects.

I made them in long strips making the the squares. Then cut out one corner and cut to pieces to the height of the cutting board that I wanted. After that I did a dry fit of all the pieces and played with the design. The corner that was cut out needed to be redone as on some pieces it was off by a couple thousandths. Doesn’t sound like much but it was enough to leave gaps. Then I glued up the board all at once on a piece of glass in a square jig i built. Only the points of the square pieces touch the jig not the flat sides. The next step was squareing it up and glueing a strip to the back and sides so I could run it through the planer to knock some off some high spots. Then I hand planed it smooth after that and finished it but flooding it with a thinned poly.
