Checkering:
Wrap-around or side panel patterns checkering and density of the checkering is left to the owners selection. Two kinds of cutters are used namely:
90 degree cutter - The standard side panel checkering is usually cut is 18 or 20 lpi (lines per inch). Seen below is Pattern # 1 and 2. The wrap-around patterns are cut in 20 lpi as can be seen in Pattern # 3 to 6 below.
60 degree cutter - This style allows a higher density lpi and is cut in 22 flat top, 24 or 26 lpi all wrap around patterns. Pattern 7 is cut in 26 or 28 lpi. The lpi specified also depends on the quality of the wood selected and density of the grain.
