well, i put my foot in it this time! this is the oddest board i've made to date. it is maple, cherry, and walnut, and is designed to give allen a headache if he looks at it too long. details to follow as construction occurs, but for now, i have all of the lumber for this and another project, all of the parts cut, then planed to thickness (1/4"), and the first blank glued up, and then the rest glued up. can't wait to finish this one up.
