That’s really neat, Larry. I agree with Steve…. the border really finishes it off nicely.

Looks great Larry. I looked up tessalations on the net and found out a little about how these designs are developed. Apparently the designs are not predetermined. It begins with a basic geometric shape which is pulled into different directions until it resembled something and then the resemblance is further refined using the same method until the design finished. this is a tutorial for kids to show how to do it in case anyone is interested in trying it out.

Pretty cool Larry. Something like this based on Escher’s tesselations has been on my list for a while. The concept really lends itself to packet cut marquetry.
Yours certainly makes for a very impressive board.

That’s some beautiful work and it looks like a “bear” of a glue up.
I saw this same pattern on the walkway at Mama’s Fish House Restaurant on Maui. Link (I didn’t take this picture). I thought it was pretty amazing then and this is even MORE amazing!

this is really quite impressive, i was a little concerned with the glue up as the ends being burned, but this looks really great, i hope it finds success for the shop…how about some bears next time:)
