Just putting the finishing touches on a bunch of boards, thanks to many of you for lot’s of inspiration.
Here’s the detail:
#1 – Sinister style board – Cocobolo and Yellowheart are the primary colors – also includes Maple, Cherry and Padauk:
#2 – Walnut – My poor photography skills don’t do this beautiful end grain it’s do…..made 2 versions of this one:
#3 – Some weird leftovers from a Degoose inspired tumbling block project – Cocobolo, Yellowheart, Walnut, Granadillo, Maple, Tigerwood and Lacewood – Not the most creative piece out there, but it is beefy:
#4 – Hardwood Flooring Boards – There are 2 different boards made here – I thought I would end up with a random pattern but this is what I got – once you start gluing you are committed! I should mention that the Yellowheart is not flooring, everything else is – Maple, Yellowheart, Brazilian Walnut (IPE) and 2 kinds of Rosewood, the little pieces are the cutoff’s from squaring up the flooring, hate to throw away good wood:
#5 – My favorite – but really didn’t finish that well and certainly doesn’t photograph well – Again a flooring board, Brazilian Walnut (Ipe) and 2 types of Rosewood – You can’t believe how hard these boards are. Thankfully I have the drum sander, otherwise this simply wouldn’t be possible (for me at least!):
#6 – Maple Buther Blocks – Built 2 of these, but have alot of raw material to build more of these – mostly prototype stuff here – just playing with the possibilities. There is something really nice about a solid Maple board:
Appreciate all your feedback!
