Actually, I still have so many pending designs such as spiral, rectangular and the parabolic that are on halt.

However, when I experimented on this rhumboid …. that from a square rod, I can convert it to a 60×120 degrees rhomboid. Simply saying, I can create two equilateral triangles out of a square cut 45 degrees from end to end. Meaning 45 on x axis and 45 degrees on y axis of a miter.

Here is the design:

And here is the latest photo of the project after several extraneous cutting. I welcome all the critics and questions that I can answer I know how difficult it would be but it is a reality. The size of the board is about 16×22 inches (just edited it from 16×42 which is wrong) [Thanks for Steve]. I never had counted how many pieces..

A soon as I have the latest photo I will post an update.

Please note that I am dedicating these to all my mentors here in LJ. Most special are Martyn, Spalm, Larry and even who is not so active these days GaryK. I like to try what my hands can do with respect to what this experts have made.

Wowzie!! That is one heck of a glue up.

16×42 is really large. You will have state its weight when done. Like a baby.

Good job,

Steve and to all readers…

Sorry for the misreading it… IT SHOULD BE 16 X 21 inches… I was thinking of the equivalent of 16 inches to be 42 cm… At any rate here is the latest update of it now. I am gluing the last edge where I would attach the border….

This was after the planing done… Ready for sanding.

One thing about this project… a beveled joint will allow let you gain a closed gap. Unlike the the straight joint you only depend on the clamping force…

I am honoured, Bert. This is good challenge to take on, especially the glue up. I look forward to the next post, should be good.
