Clean, Rotate, Cut, Glue

Started the day by taking yesterday’s glued up sections and cleaning them up. Basically that was a combination of jointer and sander work to get the panels to look like the photo below.

The process from there is to basically run these blanks through the table saw to cut the final end grain strips. The 7 blanks I made yesterday yielded 51 strips of end grain. The first photo shows them lined up. The problem is that to get the best look you need to randomize the pattern. This is basically a process of putting them in random order and rotating some strips 180 degrees. Ultimately that leaves you with a more pleasing panel like in the bottom photo. Currently the top is in 4 big pieces. After then next shop visit the top should be finished.
