tooch- the edges of #2 are made by laminating two strips together (maple/purpleheart)approx. 1/2 X3/4 X 32inches: then cut 2” long mitered segments @ 30 degrees; half the segments as paralleograms and half as segments with 30 degree cuts on both ends (like segmented bowl turning) When you alternate the pieces in a glueup they will form a straight line. for additional info see these sites which I need to give thanks and credit to for their shared tips/ideas on how to make the boards:
Mr M- the trickier the puzzle the more fun the accomplishment eh?
thanks all for the kind words.
