The results of spending too much time in the high heat and humidity of North Carolina. You just can’t think straight!!

Unlike normal, I precut all of the pieces.

Start the build using the best clamps I own making sure that first piece is perfectly perpendicular.

Continue build adding my favorite clamp.

Built all glued up.

Finishing touches – relieving the edges a bit.

Add the buttons for effect.

Finished.

I used Quarter-sawn Sycamore, Afromosia and Padauk. Highlighted the edge and end grains with Hickory, Walnut and Red Bullet – Maple plywood backer. Added Oak buttons. Sprayed with Satin Poly. Framed with White Oak and Natural Danish Oil.

It makes me giddy just looking at it! I must try it as a talking piece.
Thanks for posting.

This is based on the Penrose Triangle. Even Escher’s famous “Waterfall” is based on two such triangles.

I love it. If you all still sell products at the shows, this would be great to have hanging or setting on a table. Would really catch the buyers eye and who knows, they might stay around long enough to look and buy some of your other items.

I like all of the complex ones you have shown before, but I really like the simplicity of this one. It is easy to look at without inducing a headache from eye fatigue.

I love it, but I’m beginning to think you don’t see much of the world as we do. I’d love to be able to see into your mind, I’m thinking it might be a bit scrambled in a good way.

I hope that came out Ok. What I mean to say at the end of the day is your work has a lot of us really pleased to see it, so by no means is it wrong, it’s just different than most of us think.

Must be that out of the box stuff I keep hearing about, but this really is.

Thanks much for posting, always enjoyable to see your work. Judges must agree, another 3, Congrats…

Desert Woodworker – Go to https://www.im-possible.info/english In the topic box on the left, click on Figure Library. This is #59. Most of these figures are isometric drawings with base lines 30 deg. from horizontal.

You’re welcome. Be sure to check out the “Impossible Figures in Applied Art.” There are other objects in wood that are amazing. It’s under Art, and Traditional techniques.
