I saw some post with this ‘thing’, and thought: Well I wanna give it a try!
This board is made of over 250 pieces of Black Walnut, Oak and soft maple.

It’s size is 22”x16”
The pieces are 1/8” and glued on a MDF board.

The glue-up wasn’t that hard, it only took ages.

The 3-D effect is quite mind boggling. Good job.

@jacquesr:

As I mentioned, it is 22” wide, and 16” high, 56×40cm.
The columns are about 5 1/2” high and 1 1/4” wide, 14×3cm.

The nice thing is that you can play with the grain and color of the wood, that really makes the 3D effect at its best.
All the angles are 60 degrees, so it is not very hard to lay out.

This is how I started:

I cut all the pieces on the table saw, using a crosscut sled, with a 60’ angled guide
