I had a idea of making compass table so my friend help me about drawing it with compure make some cad-pictures or somethig… it would be very helpfull if you know to use these programs but anyway I had jigs which were cut with laser…making jigs like that its so easy.
Again I used heat treated wood, middle curly birch, point of stars ash/oak, base birch and edge/smaller circle ash.
Diameter of table is about 40 inches I have also jigs for smaller table 28 inches and jigs for small intervall points.
Like I wrote its experimental table made only one which is now somewhere in my workshop…

Very beautiful use of contrast. Might want to consider submitting this one to the “Yin Yang” LJ contest starting next month.

Very nice. How does a beautiful piece of work like this end out somewhere in a workshop? I can think of at least fifty people that would love to have this as a feature in a room.

Hi thanks for comments. I add some pictures from jigs and one point of star this wood is about 10 mm ( less than ½ inches) so first I made these kind of parts which was clued together, that´s not very easy because when you add clue the size of parts increase which you have to take into account. When parts are clued together not outside edge I sanded it and clued plywood middle and down I clued heat treated birch which was same thickness as top part. After that I routed plywood and under part to same size as top. Then I clued edge parts and finished it. I am not good saleman I rather do things like than try to sell maybe that´s why I am lack of money all the time…

Very nice! Have you given any thought to veneers and Hyde glue? You could achieve the same effect with veneers and it might actually be a bit easier to cut and glue the compass pieces if they are veneers. Opens lots of other alternatives and could make your future designs much more intricate. In any case, your table top is beautiful. Keep chargin!
