I made a big face grain tumbling block board that had so many errors that I didn’t want to overload DeGoose with finding all of them!! I was wanting to do one and saw Mr. Budsters post just after I ripped the wood. That led to woodmosiacs blogs and I was off. I made his jig and did a lot of adjusting cuts. I think I made all of the possible mistakes. I had this box made and needed a top. I thought a smaller version of a Tumbling Blocks pattern would work. I know I saw someone do this here last year. Thanks to whoever that was. The box is Padauk and curly Maple. 8”x6”x6” The top is Padayk, Sapelle, and Maple with a border of Jotoba. Watco Natural Danish Oil. I put little arrows on each piece to keep the correct grain orientation. Had to fill a few gaps. Okay Larry, here is the board too. Can you find the 9 mistakes?? I always enjoy your observations, so have at it!
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
