The quadrilaterals signify 4 sides… trapezoid, rhombus, squares, parallelogram, etc..

Here below is the actual RANDOM trapezoid and rectangles that I had directly cut without any plans.

First, I started with the center square then walled it with trapezoids. Continue the symmetry of the trapezoid and whatever left spaces were filled up with rectangles. It turned out to be good. The organized random will be visible because, I have to cut in pairs of these trapezoid, however the connection with other rectangles are not in colors with the effect… therefore you can see different figures and not an illusion.

For me, it become a real abnormality in forming an organized random… the sizes are not repeated and has to be cut individually.. I will reveal the secrets of constructing the sides if I will be successful.


If I will make it as a box then the sides can be connected adding some motif in a quartz like hexagon….

The mouse pad …. the original plan…. after coating a little bit of lacquer.

If you have some suggestions for the sides…. just be on the 4 blend of colors as I have limited leftovers…
I am just using recycled wood.
