Lots of stripes…and a chevron or two..


I needed  to make a special cheese board… so back to something I have not done recently.. chevron pattern.. this is basically a lot of stripes of different timber glued together and then cut at 40 degrees… rotating every other cut and gluing them back together…

The one at the bottom will end up as the cheese board… and there are actually three more on top…

Here is the dry fit… not really sure what shape this will end up as… maybe some curves to contrast the angles…???

Interesting, the centre stripe is Queen Ebony or Pacific Blackwood… imported from the Solomon Islands by my good mate Brian at Sitco…

Various timbers, Silver Ash, Huon Pine, Narra, Purple Heart ….these are destined to be tea light holders… wait and see…

Three to start with…

A little more cutting and glueing…

I bought some SOY candles recently from the local Market..

Here are some Lavender candles sitting on a piece of Tiger Myrtle..
