Very nice way of keeping the pieces separate…and the profile around the edge of the squares…Such attention to detail makes a great deal of difference.. Did you make the outside squares longer to compensate for the routed profile. Looks great.

Looks great!

Did you get the gold parts for the pieces from Rockler back when they were selling them?

Yes, The end squares were longer than the center squares, Then sqared up on the radial arm saw, 3/8 longer then roughted.

Great job. Your squares look dead-on.
