I love my new drum sander!! The cross over from fabric quilting to wood quilting is going to be expsnsive but I’m loving it. I lost the contrast in my design when I oiled this one. Another lesson learn.. don’t trust the color not to change. Test it, test it, test it.
Next project will be to build a jig for the table saw for more accurate shapes. I’m looking forward to any and all advice!

That’s one of the most beautiful cutting boards I’ve seen—very attractive!

Almost (no, definitely) too nice to use!

Nice job, but you’d better watch it! You are going in a marquetry direction and some guys never recover from that, just sayin ’.

My wife is a quilter and I am a woodworker. One big difference in our quilted patterns is the accuracy in cutting the wood for a cutting board. Every piece of wood must be accurately cut and square. You can’t stretch the wood and there is no 1/4” seam allowance. Take a look at my ‘projects’ page for some examples, especially the one that shows our king size bed quilt and matching ‘quilt chest’.

Thank you all, boy you guys do beautiful work. I’m definitely taking your comments as compliments.
Marquetry is my new word for the day,,, , I’ve heard the word before of course, but today I looked it up and that’s definitely where I want to go grin.
You matched your wife’s quilt perfectly ampeater

Wonderful work. It’s true that wood can change color through the process … but then, so does fabric, over time.
