Community Bazaar: The art of woodwork

Roger Marcoux uses a table saw to make the final cuts on a cutting board made from various pieces of wood.

Roger Marcoux’s garage is filled with machinery of the wood-cutting variety, and features on one side a rack upon which sits planks of exotics: lustrous fiddleback maple, the vibrant red of sapella, a deep purple heartwood and a lacewood whose texture begs to be touched.

Ask him to see a piece of leopard wood.

In a corner is a basket of multi-colored sticks of the same, ready to be glued into place and made into cheese boards, cutting boards and — odd, to Marcoux’s thinking — art.
