Angles are cut at 30 degrees. The link below shows the jig I use to cut the diamonds:

Great job. I’ve been contemplating building something like that. I just need to work up the patience.

I believe the pattern is called Louis Cube after one on the French Kings of the 18th (?) century. I’ve used it myself for a veneer pattern on a writing slope but no way as good as this one. Splendid work Mr. Budster.
