I cut the pieces today. I used maple, walnut and cherry. Not the best contrasting wood but that’s all I had.
I did cut twice as much as I needded.
Try to get your pieces from the same board. I used 2 different boards for the walnut. The grain and color were different. that break the 3D effect a little.
The sled (made today). the clamp are cheap Harbor Freight I bought a couple of years ago; a pain to work with.
The cut pieces
Ready to trim. Don’t change the position of the fence until you trim all.
I made 2 rods or “sausages” and cut the individual hexagones 1 1/4 thick.
