You’re a bit late posting this morning….I look for your blog every morning before I go to work. Luckily I’m off today, so I can have my morning dose of “What’s Larry been up to while I was sleeping?” It’s better than the morning paper !!

Wow, nice addition. Seven today? If you meet your 150 before the end of September are you going keep going for a new record?

You are amazing… I think I’ve said this before. You are the superhero of cutting boards.

these arced bread boards grow on you. at first I didn’t like them too much, but from certain angles they give the impression of being convex, which is nice. I wonder what happens if you repeat the process on such board going the other way? could be cool. I mean, suppose you take one of these finished boards and cut the arcs from the other end and flip every second one. just trying to slow you down….

at first glance, i thought they were convex like oval 3-d things. the meat will slide right off. cutting boards are by far my favorite pieces to make. ive made over 20, but none like that, with the curve and all. exquisite workmanship. keep it up and good luck. wm

Larry thanks for the pic of the tumbling blocks the next 1 i make i will for sure glue like this
lest 1 i did i glued each diamond 1 at a time
looks like you glue the long diamond strips together and then cut them to size and the glue the 3 sided
pieces together looks a lot easier the way you are doing it
again thanks

Great job Larry, by gosh you’ve been busy dude. Keep up the beautiful work. Not bad for having an injured wing. Cut yourself some slack.

Beautiful creations!

The illusion that anything you’d set on them would roll off is amazing.

You’re a glutton for punishment with those intricate designs, but it must be very rewarding to you.

It’s amazing how you can “bend” that wood that way… :) :)

Very interesting effect!

Do you cut the strips on a BS with a circle cutting jig (modified in some way)??

Thank you.
