Some pretty good looking boards, I am just finishing of my first ones my self, not quite as fancy as yours.

Very nice assortment! I’d have a hard time deciding. Cutting board and string inlays are on the To Do List. Thanks for sharing. Hope you do well at the art show.

Thanks all! I still have a few to make, along with a few other interesting pieces!

I’m impressed you were able to keep the joints on the curves tight. I tried a wavy board once and I couldn’t get the pieces to fit afterwards (I did cut both contrasting boards at the same time, but still had gaps). Nice work.

I taped them together and used a 3/8th inch blade with minimal offset on the teeth – I had to get advice from another LJ’s member and it turned out nicely. I recently upgrade to a new bandsaw and the blade that came with it wouldn’t cut both at the same time. I bought new blades and they didn’t cut well because the teeth were too offset. I’m waiting for a new one to be delivered now.

Very nice. My first show of the season is in a little over a month. It seems like no matter how many pieces I have, I’m panicked I won’t have enough. Of course I always end up with tons left over. The curves and the string inlays are also on my to-do list. Unfortunately that list just keeps getting longer. Way too much inspiration on this site.

Beautiful boards. Nice choice of wood and the way you have put them together. I was looking at this wooden chopping board the other day with a cockerel on it that I think someone I know would like

Hope to see more. :)

Have your say...
