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,

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?
