I needed a a few pieces that have ray fleck to match the legs of my end table I am currently making. I had one 2x2 that I could mill to dimension but it didn't quite have enough ray fleck distinction in it.
Not quite enough ray fleck
So I decided to get more out of it by using a little cut up method I read about.
End grain view showing where to cut for better distinction.
The tip is to cut to the angle so the end grain is 100% QS.
BTW here is the cabinet glued up. I am making the drawer now. Think I'll put an abony pull on it.
