This project is all about plywood effects as a result the way gluing more than hundred square pieces of PW . This time I had to build 4 quarters of many squares of PW and glued them leaning 45 degrees toward one corner, as shown in photo # 4 and leveled two sides of each quarter and then glued four of them together just to make the blank. YES, it was long and boring process but it was a challenge that I accepted to take.

That is a great piece Sam, might have been a long and boring process but you certainly won over the challenge.
Beautiful effects with the plywood layers all matching perfectly in pic 1 and a wonderful finish. A great creation and you certainly are the Grand Master of plywood working. Thanks for showing.

That’s a beauty, Sam. I love the shapes that come out of flat plywood when you turn it round!!

Very nice work! Is that the complete blank in photo 3 and 4 or is that just one section?
