This project was fun. Saw a board like this from degoose and took off. Puzzled about end graining it but Larry fixed that and told me how.

see blog on how I did it at:
http://lumberjocks.com/Philzoel/blog/27635

pic 1: shows board pre-finished. The board is is 18 1\2” x 13”. Made of walnut, cherry and hard maple.
Pic 2: is at an angle
Pic 3: is back side
Pic 4: is another angle
Pic 5: with knife for reference
Pic 6: straight down on board

My rendition does not square up board. It adds to box illusion I believe and adds more boxes same wood. Pictures do not show the edges too well. They work fine too. Board is bigger by points not cut off.

Thanks

Nice job. I will have to watch and see how you did this as end grain. I have only done one as flat face.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Great work these are so much fun, Larry ( degoose ) is one of the Masters on here. He has become a friend and a joy to chat with. Keep up the great work.

Very nice job Phil.
Be careful. Once you have a drum sander and a few techniques, building these can take over your life. But oh, so much fun.

Good job,
Steve

Great looking board Phil. The pattern is nice and the 3D effect jumps right out. Nice work!
