    I use Elmers white wood glue. If you don't want to make them Dan at TaylorMirfield has serpentine blanks.
    You know your old when your sweetie says "lets go upstairs and make love" and you reply "honey, I can't do both."

    But the fun is in the making!!! I've got a purple yew and London plain on the go both with a can of Stella chopped up!! So I did the London plain like your first blank, not crossed over and the purple yew I did crossed over - didn't realise the bits were going to fall out ha ha ha, all glued up again and put back together so I'm planning on doing another two cuts on another side, the London plain I've done with CA and the purple yew has been done with wood glue, the magnolia coloured one in a blue tube that's mentioned quite a lot in American you tube videos, will see how they turn out!

    They are very nice Terry and its great that you describe how you make them. I'm sure they will fly off the shelves.
    There are only 10 sorts of people in the world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't.

    Miles the crossover pattern is done 1 strip at a time not 2 with loose bits. It's a much friendlier glue up.
