Well, final sanding is complete and a few coats of mineral oil… ready enough to show you…
As I said in my blog the glue up was a lot of fun… and some slippage was inevitable but overall … not so shabby.
Timbers used were Tasmanian Blackwood, Queensland Maple and Hoop Pine.
Size is roughly 18 inches by 12 inches and just over 1 1/2 inches thick… it was thicker but with the vertical slippage lost a little height… bugger…
Last photo is a sneak peak of the one step on the angle… another SPalm design…

This has got to be one of the most impressive boards I have ever seen!
Wild and the depth is 3D in HD.
You are the Master!

Another great build on this board Larry. Really like the 3D effect also. SPalm should feel proud.

Makes a Daddy proud.

Good job, Larry. You do excellent work.

I like the teaser, you went with a non-symmetrical notch, but yet all the points line up. I love it.

Your boards are top notch. You should do a book for those of us who are less gifted with creative genius.

That is just amazing , Larry !!!
Now who’s going to top this one ??
I feel like such a loser making flat grained boards : (
I guess I’m going to have to pick up the pace and start experimenting ASAP : )
