Actually took a few days…and there are 12 large and 5 small…
Here are a few boards… some finished some not… but hey… they are from the timber in my last wood gloat… the curly [quilted] Queensland Maple and some other timbers I had lying around…
They include Jarrah, Silver Ash, Purple Heart and Myrtle.
Large ones are 400 mm by 250 mm and the small are 250 mm by 200 mm…. [you convert to imperial]

It is sometimes good to see the rough blank half finished…

That Jarrah really frames that quilted maple beautifully. Always loved your boards larry but these are just gorgeous.

Some great looking boards Larry.
The grain is fantastic on some of them.

Hey, you’re getting back into the “Swing” of things!

Very nice!

Nice little rack you have there to hold them up on edge!
... I guess one could just pound a few large nails into some boards to make them…
... COOL!

Are you going to use your old Signature method or are you going to start using your laser machine to Sign them?

Thank you!
