How is that done? Is there a trick to getting the weave? Amazing!

The only trick is planing the individual blocks to the exact dimensions (within 0.001 inch) and using a slow set glue for assembly. I used titebond II extend. I also made a gluing jig that kept the sides square and applied pressure from the top so it wouldn’t explode when tightened down the clamps.

Did you laminate the narrow walnut strips to the wider maple strips as a early step? Or should we keep guessing?
