Maple, Cherry, Walnut.
Both sides of the 3d stairs are made from one block that was ripped on the band saw.

A guy ordered this project as an anniversary present for his wife.
It is a Halla (bread) tray for Saturday custom meal.
The laser etched paragraph is in Hebrew, and is from the holy bible. refers to 12 breads that were used to be in the Temple in Jerusalem.

The thickness is a bit pushing the boundaries (at least for me) – it is 16 mm (0.6 inch).
I was very pleased to find those stainless steel threaded legs. its originally made for holding glass shelves, and they are very cheap.

-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.

I do the etching in a small print shop. their laser machine is basically for producing rubber stamps. its not enough to cut the wood, but its more than enough for good looking engraving.

Very nice. I’ve been experimenting with some 3D designs. Where did you get the idea for yours? I don’t think I’ve seen a design like that.

Jim – I got the first idea from Spalm. he wrote a great and detailed blog about the process:
http://lumberjocks.com/SPalm/blog/16496

I took that technique and improved it a bit with an easier clamping method, as you can see here:

my other 3d designs are mine. i take inspiration from 2d patterns i see, and try to convert them to 3d. then i try to convert it to end grain version. many don’t work cus hard glue-up or such, but from time to time i get a new pattern that works.
