After seeing Britboxmaker’s hexagon boards,I thought I would give it a try.Not as reveling as Brits but I did secede with my quest. Well everyone at lumberjocks has inspires me to try different things.Made out of oak,cherry,walnut,wenge,European beech,big board is 10”x13” medium board is 9”x7” small board is 8”x4”

The board that looks like a honeycomb is awesome.
I love the way the colors of this one come together.
Great job on all the boards, keep going….

That one in pic 3 is amazing, (same as Dustbunny likes). Got a real 3d effect to it. I think your colour selection is better than mine in this one. Nice pathway effect too. Well done.

Love the honeycomb looking one…. ...sort of pops off the plane of the board. Nice work.

Great boards, Bill. I like the first one; my eye keeps switching direction with it and trying to establish some order! Very nicely done.

Wow Bill, That is a nice outlay. I like them all. The first one keeps making my eyes go from squiggles to steps, the honeycomb is an amazingly sweet design, and the tumbler is cool with the artsy color scheme.

Good job. Way to take an idea and make it your own.

Thanks for all the comments,the first pic I was trying for (britboxmakers) effect but I should have used 2 different woods for the hexagon,then it might have had same effect(The Mighty giants)

Bill, you’re doing fine. Experimentation is the key. Its how most people, myself included, get there.
