Thanks to Mary Ann for the idea for first one.
Made from Cherry, Walnut, Maple and Purpleheart.

The second board is Not so strange and easier on the eyes.
Made from cherry, maple, walnut and some other strange wood (Afromazia?) not sure.

The first two boards have been sanded but not been finished. Can’t finish until they become something.

The last is the top of the table from a previous post Martyin inspired with a $12 finish.
I guessed it to be $15, I am satisfied with the savings.

All made from scrap wood from a local stair and chair shop.

That table top came up really well. Its got more depth with the finish on it. The others are splendid as well. Looks like your hooked now then.

I can’t imagine how you put these together. It is one of my goals to make a board but I think it is going to be awhile. Are they just glued or do you have to biscuit them or something else?

More geometrical mayhem. Well done on all three. I’ll have to do some of this stuff eventually, it looks like a lot of fun.
