Playing around with the color variations offered where the heart and sap wood meet. Ripping the boards somewhat strategically, and also in the glue-ups.

Doug, this is a great board. I like the swirling of the colors, rather than the sharp delineation usually achieved here. This has a very flowing feel to it. I’m with Keith, I want to keep looking at it and it encourages my eye to naturally wander all over the board, following the grain lines and gradual color shifts. Nicely done!

Thank you. I enjoyed making it. Sometimes you are surprised at how the wood itself helps you with the outcome. If you have interest, you can view others at www.mcphersonvisionsinwood.com

Your chisel may be dull, but not your creativity. I love when sapwood is mixed in with the heartwood. I made a candlestick out of walnut with both in it.
