FIND OUT why I call it the columns.

This is a project designed to capture the illusion of perspective projection. The angle of eye being the center will always create a diagonal lines. Two views can be projected as:




Brown – RED LAUAN – using a different jig like a miter box those trapezoid on different angles were manually sawed.
Yellow – MOLAVE or PHILIPPINE TEAK – I use the miter box to mark the width and cut the at right angle.
Orange – NARRA – the square.
White – Unknown – I use a tongue depressant that is similar to the popsicle sticks. I like to use this because of its gluing capability. Maybe because it is so clean and been bleached.

I HOPE YOU LIKE THE DESIGN OF THIS PARQUETRY… One of my friends requested for me to use this pattern on his floor. Well… around 4 days or such a piece of work… then how many days it will be for a floor….

Have a nice day.

Perspective achieved, Bert. Very clear and an interesting and well constructed design. I like this a lot.
