I was told by my mentor that if I ever completed this 8 pointed star mobius ribbon I would be the first person ever to do it on the scroll saw. The original suggestion was a 6 pointed star but using 1/2 and 1/4 sections I found this not possible so went for the 8 points which made the 1/4 sections even. This is my second attempt (the first and last) not being a great scroll sawer I stumbled when cutting the inner points and have more pieces in the bin that on the project. Sorry I didn’t take photos along the way as I did not expect it to join up, 2 in no. halves and 10 in no. 1/4
sections were used but I could reconstruct a rough one from the miss fits in anyone is interested.
Once again the bowl from a board method was used, each section has 4 rings or whatever approximately 1/2” wide and below are a couple of pics of the glued up sections, see a psychiatrist I you ever think of doing one.
1 of each section
2 halves 10 quarters
