Well I finally got the Louis Cube (Tumbling Blocks) out of my system. Unless someone I really, really like asks me to make one for them, this is it. I do have to admit. I do like the effect after cleaning and reapplying mineral oil on the cutting board. Once a month does it and it looks like new. bye for now and all the best. My inspiration for these tumbling block projects came from (degoose) on LJ. Here is the link to his site which shows great instructions and photos. Thank you degoose.

Very handsome work. I tried it once with veneer and it came out similar, but then I sanded it down too much trying to flatten it out and ruined it. Your work inspires me to give it another try (now that I’m a more careful woodworker).

Thanks for showing.

The tumbling block design in different projects, works so well. Your approach to the process is so accurate that many of us will be trying it ourselves. Like everyone said, this was very impressive. Thank you for inspiring.

You certainly covered a lot of applications for the design. Very nice job. You deserve a break!! They are fun to do, but more fun to admire.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Have your say...
