I haven’t posted in a while and wanted to show the pieces that I have been working on. I started to make a whole bunch of larger end grain blocks gearing up for the holidays. I really took my time on a couple of the designs. Im going for equal distribution of grain work and pattern work. Soon I am going to start implementing different hardware and router techniques for handles and more intricate wells and juice grooves. ANY IDEAS? Currently I don’t use any templates but if there are a couple that are deemed a necessity for end grain blocks Id love to hear about them. Also Ive begun packaging my boards in canvass bags with toggles that I make myself. I think they add a nice finished touch to the boards. I might change them around though and make them drawstring tops instead almost like a sock for the boards. Thanks for checking out my work I hope you enjoy.
