Still playing with colors and shapes.

These are just way too much fun to make.

Number 1 & 2 is made with maple, purpleheart, padauk and walnut.

Number 3 is made with 23 different strips of wood.

Number 4 is walnut and maple.

Number 5 is a 3-1 pattern, 3 walnuts, then a cherry, then repeat. This is my favorite because the sap wood in the walnut makes a marbled effect.

They are all good looking boards! Maybe too good, cuz people wouldn’t want to make the first cut on them!

Hi Robert.
  1. 1 & 2 are from the same glue up, just arranged different. The angle is about 18 degrees.

All these boards have great color combinations and patterns. I like them all and my favorite one is the one with all the strips. Great work.

Bob, these boards are so colorful and interesting. I love the pattern and all of the different wood and they are so pleasing to my eye. Congratulations on a job well done.
