Thank you!! It was a fun challenge. The bandsaw wandered a little but that can be fixed with a little planing. Now to finish it with a good surface to bring out the extraordinary grain. Back to work. Thank you all for the encouragement!!

Wow Rob, this looks great! Now I vaguely remember seeing this done before, but I forgot, so it was still a big surprise to me.

Check out Roy Underhill’s PBS show. http://m.video.pbs.org/video/2172468729/. He does it it hand tools. I used power where I could. Still a challenge. Fun project for a small piece of wood. Mine still has a lot of work to do. Thanks for stopping by.
