M C Escher tessellations…


Recently I was sent a link to Instructables.com…

They made an end grain tessellated chopping board… cut with a 400 W laser…

My laser is only 80 W so I cut some thinner timber…long grain Rosewood actually…

IMG_3636They are almost impossible to glue individually… so put them together dry… used masking tape on the back and smeared glue all over… scraped it across and into the joints…

More when it is finished… [at the moment it is in a vacuum bag being glued to a 10 mm ply substrate..
