this is for all of you that asked for a how to with this design ,
and moshel thank you for waiting so long .
the process is rather simple ,
like many of my designs .
i usualy use liquid epoxy as it does not make the pieces warp .
and am carefull not to drag the pieces thru the glue ,
as this makes a glue line and can ” tweek ” the pieces ,
making it hard as the design progresses to keep them aligned .

start with a circle jig ,
the cross is the pivot.
with edge rail and center somewhere close to it .
and slghtly behind cut line of bandsaw blade .
the point of the finished piece wants to be slightly over from tangent ,
as the point need to be strong and not feathered .
all wood wants to be straight and ripped the same.


the nail in the jig is the stop,
it only is in top slider board.
it can be where you want it ,
but i’ve found that you want the pieces to be proportional .
to long , or to fat ,
and the design looks to bloated .
pivot the jig , and save the end piece ,
if you want to use it for trimming for edge .

slide board forward , and to stop , and pivot again .

for a sequential run in the parts ,
stack them in sequence and make piles of them ,
then lay out from bottom forward to place them in their
original place in board.

flip every other one ,
and fit together.

procced with all rows .

if you want to make the design random ,
make as many pieces of mixed woods and place haphazardly in field.
this is another picture of the design up close .
this one is sequential also

i learned construction in prison,
for smoking pot ,
i was framed ,and like bill , i never inhaled ?
( they were’nt giving it away , i had to fight for it ! )
all of my shop skills are self taught ,
as are my boatbuilding skills.
the art comes from creator ,
so i pay atention to it ,
as it is a gift .
that is why i can share it .
the more i give and help others ,
the more i get to learn !

Smoking POT?! Oh, My God! Doesn’t that lead to Maniacal Laughter and people jumping out of windows? Or those terrible scourges of society: #1) Frisbee Tossing and #2) The Munchies? There must be a really, really lot of Road Rage incidents caused by smoking Grass too, you know how hepped up those people can be…(if anything, they’d be driving too slowly LOL)
I like the pattern! Going to have to salt that one away for future consideration! Thanks, David!!

Thanks David! this will be used heavily, as I really like these shapes. the jig is much simpler than I expected. I will have to postpone building this jig till I finish building the shrine in your honor :-)

about epoxy, i really hardly worked with it. if you don’t drag the pieces, how do you get glue between the pieces? do you use slow epoxy? i guess a 5 min one is really out of the question :-)

you used microwave is one of the posts. was it to speed curing of epoxy or white glue?

again, thank you for all the knowledge. reading your posts make me always itch to run to the shop. and thats a wonderful feeling.

its also amazing that you get such contrast from just flipping the pieces. it looks like another kind of wood.

good morning , guys .
i just had my first sip of coffee , and can now focus on this to reply .
moshel : im glad you like it ! i have found that you want to have a sharp blade , as any wobble can really mess with
this alot over distance ! i some times start my inlays in the middle and work out to edges , as this 1/2’s the error
overall . i have made variuos inlays with glue in betwenn the pieces and without , and prefer the not glued edges myself , as i find that getting the glue evenly in all the edges is time consuming and messy . remember , that i usualy make my inlay work glued to ply or box top , not to itself .as in the doors in picks , they are a 3/4” ply in the frame of door so i get a 1/2” inset on either side of door . i have made many of them (with this and other designs ) and dry cut and assemble the parts to fit this cavity .when i get anjious whith the glue up , i have had the inlay increas in length by 1/4 ” over all with the glue in between , and scrambleing to cut parts with glue all over them !
if you make this like cutting boards , than by all means use glue in bettween !

and I am going to sleep soon :-) its a small world…
another question: all your bandsaw jigs looks like they are made so effortlessly. when I make a bandsaw jig i find that attaching it to the table is really a pain. either i use clamps (which always get in the way or loosen in the wrong time) or is use some elaborate thingie below the table to clamps it. whats your secret?
