I went to visit my mom in AZ on her birthday (93 years old) in Feb and while there my sister and niece saw my projects and ordered some LVDTs to be sent to them in Neb. So, here are some they got to choose from. All of the pictures are numbered so we can talk about the correct item. #2 is made from some of the bamboo flooring I got from LJ EROCK. #6 started out as a McCleanVA inspired zig zag pattern but during glue up I discovered it was cupping. The best fix was to turn it into oval. The lesson here is that now I run EVERY glue edge piece thru the drum sander prior to glueing so I have parallel edges. Seems to work so far.
#5 is the standard zig zag pattern from Chris. Nice pattern and very easy with the pattern that Chris supplied.
#4 is just a pattern that I came up with using the basic 2-3-4-3 pattern from Chris. While making this one the light FINALLY came on. ANY pattern will work. The key is figuring out how wide you want the board and then making sure that the long grain layout IS NOT CENTERED.
I made up 12 different boards for them to choose from but decided not to download them all.
Comments and question always welcome.
