Lost Hiway

Two cheese boards with the centers switched.
I stacked to different style boards and secured them with double side tape and free hand cut the hiway shape. Then switched the parts but lined the curves with a thin strip of walnut.
These are prototypes, I will be more careful with how the lines converge next time.
8” x 16”
Mineral oil

Mahogany, walnut, maple, and cherry. Various woods were used for the plugs.

Thanks for looking,
Andy

Looks good Andy.
This may be the thickest Boulle style marquetry I’ve ever seen ;-)

Of course I love it! It’s pretty jazzy. I can feel the syncopated beat. With horns in the background and some pretty amazing keyboard work behind a raspy voiced singer. Nice!!!!!!!

Andy, when you glue these curved Walnut pieces in the kerf like that, do you dowel them since they are bent?
