Thanks go to Steve, aka SPalm for the design..
This double Mobius strip is made up of Tasmanian Blackwood, New Guinea Rosewood, Queensland Red Cedar with Camphor Laurel background and a border of Crow’s Ash..
This was so much fun and actually very simple to cut and to glue… The Incra Mitre Express makes light work of cutting angles… overall diameter is 18 inches with each of the stripes just over 2 1/2 inches wide..I have a variation planned but will wait a while … still have some of my own designs to try out first..

Well Done Larry (and Spalm too). I am beginning now to understand just how limitless the design possiblilits are now that you have perfected your techniques. This is a beaut!

Nice, Larry.
Like the mobius in a round base… give it the right tension.
Kudos to Steve for his blog and design.

Grass doesn’t grow under your feet, does it? This is great. I love the wood choices. I like this as a subtle design.

Good job on the border. I was playing around with a square one, but I know you are all set up for large circles. I also wanted to show a real easy way for someone without your Incra jig to cut one of these. I am sure it was pie simple for you.
