I saw this coloured ply in a magazine and decided I just HAD to have some. It was supplied by Cousineau Wood Products (USA) and was available in a 10in x 35in x 2in sheet. I had it cut into 3 equal size pieces to fit into a USPS large flat rate box, which made the postage affordable.
From the three pieces I cut 3×8in squares and glued them together to make one blank. Then I sliced the blank with the layers upright, through the middle piece, on an angle of about 1/2 inch. This resulted in two 8×8 blanks with the layers tapering across the edge.
After the bowls I decided to make the S & P grinders and two sets of egg cups.
I still have a couple of pieces left, waiting, lurking??????
Hope you enjoy.
