This design has always intrigued me, so I just had to try one. I used maple, cherry and walnut woods in the pattern.

The stock was ripped 1 inch wide, and cut to a length of 1 3/16 long, at a 30 degree angle. Assembly requires patience, but the finished piece is worth the effort.

I really like that. What was your process for glue up? It just looks like something that could get out of hand real quick without some kind of organization.

Well done and good contrast. Would you mind walking me through the glue up process; all the joints are so tight! Thanks

You really nailed the 3D effect on this one ….Simply amazing and so beautiful.
I thank you as well for the dimensions and angles and I guess I’ll have to invest in one of those fancy miter gauges after all : )

VERY nice piece. The 3-D effect reminds me of the small piece of a “Quilt” pattern I recently posted in my blog.
