A distraction or two ?

As you may have read I am making an Apothecary cabinet… and as usual… I am easily sidetracked… I came across a design that I thought interesting… well you know how it is…

So I thought in-between cutting the grooves in the bottoms of the drawers I might as well give this a go..
Here is my version of an impossible 3D figure… or two.. FWIW... these projects were both finished in one day... from the design, milling, cutting, glueing, sanding and finishing… just bragging again….I can’t help it…
The three timbers used are Tasmanian Blackwood, New Guinea Rosewood, Camphor Laurel…
There are only two angles used… 90 and 45… I used the Incra Mitre Express with the Mitre Guage 2000 … makes switching between the two angles so much easier… and it is super accurate..

Nice job Larry!

Now focus and get back on track. ;-)

Was this a 10, or 15-minute project? Just kidding, I’m sure it took many hours longer than that just to figure out all the cuts, etc.

It does look great!

Beautiful as usual Larry, love the wood combinations and the 3d effect. The Escher design is really neat…. just like the origial drawing, you can’t tell where it begins or ends….

BTW, is that another “Teaser” in the background again?........ I LOVE Celtic knot designs so I sure hope so ! hint hint…....... of course, we wouldn’t want you to get “sidetracked” from your Apothicary cabinet ! LOL

Very good. Amazing how boards can distract us from the real work of box-making, lol.

These are very cool! I noticed the Celtic knot design I sketched up in the background. Are you getting up the nerve to tackle it? It will be a long time before I try it and it would be fun to see someone turn it into reality.
