been wanting to try one of these for a while ,it came out ok, but when its time to glue up better have all your ducks in a row ,it was thicker but panicked during the glue up and got some bow in it and some pieces out of wack ,sanded it back flat on the drum sander . if you do one of these do be ready for a testy glue up . now that ive done it i think the next one will be a bit easier. i think this is maple for the light wood ,honey locust for the yellowish and walnut, dont take that to the bank as im not really sure it was some i had left over from something else. hat off to one of the master on here for his blog that was very helpful in making this , i think his name is Larry degoose thanks for the blog and sharing it and the next one im going with the two thin strips it looks better just didnt want to try and eat the whole apple in one bite. , and think hes called Tony thanks for the measurements and blog it was the size i wanted and for sharing ,its not perfect some small gaps that the pics dont show but something i can live with for my own but would have to be better before i sold one . all together it was a fun build .thanks for looking .

That looks great, love the weave pattern.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Eddie, that is awesome! Just read through Degoose’s blog series on this-the glue up would be very nerve racking to me, though he breezed right through it. Glad to hear you’ll do another. Thanks for sharing.

-- God bless, Candy

Thanks for the flag, Eddie. we sure need it now in these rough times.
and a very nice board. i made a similar pattern but with a different approach, both end grain and long grain versions. you can check in my projects – one of the first ones.

I’ve made a few of these so I understand the challenges, you did good!
I’m interested in your clamping glue up rig shown in the pics, when you get time a write up on it would be a good thing.
