I did a blog about this design a few months ago but never posted it as a project… thought I would do so now.
Since many do not bother with the blogs and only look at the projects here it is for those who did not see it on the blog….

FWIW this piece won first prize at the local show..
Main weave is Tasmanian Blackwood.,. Silver Ash and Purple Heart Accents…

First- allow me to publicly apologize to you Larry.
I did not link your weave blog in the original blog I posted.
I have corrected this error, and meant no slight to you : (
For many of my projects you have been my inspiration and mentor.
Your weave board and wave board blogs have brought my skills to were they are today.
It has been an honor having you as a mentor.

I love the round weaves, it gives the board a second geometry : )
