A couple of new designs I came up with.
Both are prototypes and have small flaws. But I typically go ahead and complete a new design just to find its weak spots, either in the design or my proceedure.
Both of these are a little tricky to glue up but they are pretty basic, just a bit of head scratching here and there.
As I have said before, boards are a good way to try out new ideas and wood combinations, they are fairly fast to make and use very little wood.
The first one is maple with mahogany strips, walnut shoulders and a bloodwood disc. This is a more formal design and one I will play with more.
The second one is bookmatched cherry with a maple/walnut stripe and walnut sides. The city skyline design is common in art deco.
They are coated in badger sweat and beeswax.
Thanks for looking.
