WOW! Those are absolutely gorgeous!  I really like the non-symmetrical wood layout. I think it really adds to the beauty of the pieces.

 

Where did you get the runner feet?

Hey thanks Lew, I bought them from home depot. I think they are bumpers for doors/door knobs. You can buy ones for cutting boards from wood craft I think, but the HD ones were like $1/bumper, plus the stainless screws it comes with is better for water IMO.

Lew's glue up was more or less edge to edge where yours is an edge to end glue up an you might end up  with a small problem???

Personally, I can't see why you say the glue-up sucks, it's usually only the maker of the item, that see's any mistakes made.

Myself I think it looks great, even if you didn't do any turning lol.

Nothing is wrong with yours, Lew. Its the end grain to long grain that might show later because of the expansion of the wood.

Yeah time will tell for sure. I haven’t had any separation from other pieces with inlays that are about 8 years old, but of course  all wood is different, just hope for the best as always.

I think with the thinner boards- less that an inch thick- the movement will be quite small. Plus, there is lots of surface area for bonding.

I never said the glue up sucks. I said he could have problems because gluing end grain against long grain can give problems because of the swelling of woods in different seasons. Thats why when you see a farm type table with planks glued up side by side then they add a board crossways on each end there is always a channel between the two different directions of wood so when one wood shifts more than than the other, it won't be noticeable...I didn't invent something that don't happen. Wood is wood.

Sorry, I meant the process sucks. I’m cool with how it turned out-and totally agree with you. Most mistakes are only noticed by the maker. That’s woodworking yo :)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
