    bulge cutting board

    now for a really fun optical illusion board, a bulge board. in the first pic is an example of the type of board. i will be making 3 of them to sell at upcoming craft sales. i've already figured out how much lumber i will need for all nine boards, and started out with the fun part of the bulge board, cutting almost 500 (144x3=432 plus extras) maple and walnut plugs. in order to keep going with these projects, i had to repair my rip fence. i had to replace a rod that goes through the center of the fence, and is threaded on each end. snapped the rod clean at the handle end. i guess i'm too tough on them, that's the second one in the 10 years i've had this table saw.

    Cool board, and deceptively straightforward to make. Whose design it is?

    not sure who's design it is, as it seems to be a pretty common one. it's just a generic placement of the plugs is what causes the illusion. i've seen them with both round and square plugs. there is even a video on you tube that shows how to make them.

    Great looking board, Dan!

    I've been bookmarking boards from different sources for when I finally get to a point I'm past my large projects. I drew up a couple of them in SU and showed them to LOML. She wanted to know who I hated enough to give a board like that to! Guess that means she doesn't want one!!!
