This was a teaser for an earlier post … cut the oval and finish sanded… two coats of grapeseed oil
This board was made from Queensland Red Cedar … using the 2nd generation cutting method.. without any accents… just one piece of timber…
It is 325 mm or 13 inches long and 275 mm or 11 inches wide… about 20 mm or3/4 in thick…[dual measurements suggested]
SOLD on Etsy

Larry nice work, I like that itsall a similar color and very subtle but intersting. Never heard of using grapeseed oil. Nice work as always mate.

Hope all is well down under.

A teaser alright, great work Larry. I am still in stage 1 of laminating. Victorians are a bit slow.

Great looking board Larry. I like the downplayed contrast and interesting pattern, the woods are also very interesting.

Nice work Larry. That wood selection is great.
I also like the shape – a long oval.

It’s hard to trace the first generation because it’s made of one kind of timber. It drives you to use your imagination to see many things not related to each other. Once you see thick forest with intwined trunks and another time you see you are lost in roads take you to nowhere. And that’s why I like it. It keeps me bussy to find my way.

It took a while to figure out how you created the pattern, and I still can’t take my eyes off of it. It will be a nice addition to someones kitchen. Another amazing creation.

I’m really drawn to this one by its subdued coloring and fascinating grain pattern, it’s rather mesmerizing. It reminds me of a crystalline structure somehow. Beautiful board, well done!
