Well done, as always.
I’m not familiar with hoop pine. Is it hard enough for a cutting board?
I see you get Titebond3 by the gallon :-)
Someday, I gotta get me a drum sander.

Great looking , for future reference don’t use titebond in such a glue up. We call it creaper glue the joints will have ridges . Titebond is a polyvinal glue were it moves with the tempeture where two part epoxy will never move on you . Good luck . All this and Heaven too.

I’d be careful, Larry. Produce this sort of quality too often and people might come to expect it!

Larry as always to hit it out of th park. I have this pattern on my to do list. Starting on the wood top this weekend for our outdoor dinning table. Maybe then I’ll get a few boards in.

I’m currently looking at the Delta 18/36 drum sander or the Jet 16/32 like you have. what are your thought on the Oscillating Head is it worht the extra money>?

Again great work Mate hope all is well Down Under.

You gotta think seasonal!

Picture it…....Red and Green for Xmas…......

Black and Orange for Halloween… you have Halloween down under?

Red, White, and Blue for Australia Day.

You could pick a few holidays, and make a matching set with different colors….....

......everybody should not own one of Lazy Larry’s boards, they should own a matching set!
