All the cuts for this board are 15 degrees off square. i.e 75 degree tilt to the table saw to cut the strips then the mitre express is set to 15 degrees and the table saw blade is left at 75 degree bevel so all cut are 15 degree off. Then roll up on the cut side and glue.
Endgrain board.
Every face of every piece is off square by 15 degrees.
Look at the sides.. all angled on all sides and the diamonds on the face are all 75/105 and even they are off square to the sides. The only right angles are the sides.. even the corners are … rounded lol. ok still the same timbers.. PH SA TB and NGR.. oil finish.
Size .. .. 14” not square. lol

Wow! These boards are getting more complicated all the time. Is it the beer or the brains? Great looking design and of course beautifully done as always.

Since I can’t seem to get my table saw adjusted to cut a perfect 90 degree, I think this may be an answer to my
problem ! LOL. Waiting for more beautiful boards and creative designs. Love them all !
