This was an idea of my wife’s. She seems to think I can do anything. It is Mahogany & Alder, with a fit up from Klockkit. Most of the woodwork was done on a router.

Very nice. Getting a good fit on that glue line must have been one heck of a challenge.

Beautifull. Your wife is a great source of inspiration! And you’re a good woodworker for having made such a good match of the two shapes.

This ‘sign’ or ‘image’ or ‘crest’ is called “DAO”. It ties the Yin and the Yang together.

To get such nice tight fit between the two species of wood I believe you used a router, templates and guide bushing/pattern bit, right?

Best,

Serge

I was thinking the same thing as richreer, regarding the glue line. Did you use a pattern bit with your router?
