Hi Ellen
Yes that may be in the cards.. after I finish the circle cutting blog!

Along with a few other Ideas I have where I am thinking outside the box>>>>>>

I sometimes feel that I am not really qualified to be teaching others to do things my way [ being self taught] but I feel humbled that you and a few others would like me to show you how I do it?
OK enough self depreciation and modesty LOL
Thank you for your kind remarks.
From the land downunder!!!

Larry, you have raised the bar with this cutting board design. This is simply gorgeous and quite unique. Seeing a blog on this would be a wonderful tutorial.

Your “newest project”??? You have my attention. I will be looking forward to seeing that as well.

Yes techniques and timber selection are very different but the premise of thinking outside the box has brought us together…you inspire me with your use of the jointer to make your angles where I use a table saw tilted to make the bevel and No I only have a different availability of wood…I like the grain patterns in you selection of timber…what is the species? Please.
