I was asked to make another of the zigzag boards I had for sale last Christmas. After doing 29 parent conferences, in 4 days, I was ready to relax in my shop during a few days off for Thanksgiving. I did two of different woods and showed them to the customer. She wants both of them. How greedy is that!! I was going to put one in an upcoming show. I guess I can do another. The first is Purpleheart, Walnut, and Curly Maple, with Cherry, more Maple ,and then
Walnut on the ends. The second is Padauk, Curly Maple, and Walnut, with Canarywood and Maple, and then Walnut on the ends. They are not exactly like before, but who likes to keep doing the same thing. I always want to ‘improve’ things. She likes them. I had some issues lately with the alignment of the zigzags on other boards, but I really clamped the cauls tight and nothing moved. Mineral oil and wax for a finish. They are about 14” x 20” x 3/4”
