Many years ago a friend of mine gave me a whole lot of rosewood floor blocks from a house renovation project. Through the years these blocks moved with me to the frustration of my wife. Eventually I decided to do something with them about 4 years ago. The photos show various items I made.
1 & 2 is two jewelry boxes
3 is a Chinese checkers board
4 are some place mats for hot dishes; a serviette holder; coasters and a salt & pepper shaker set
5 is a close up of the salt and pepper shaker set
6 is a close up of the coasters.
The blocks were cut to 4mm thickness on my table saw and where needed laminated in instances where the blocks were too narrow for the coasters.
I made a press jig for the place mats (Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of that)
