Recycle1943, Dick, I would be more than happy to share. The angles are 45 and 60. The pieces are 1.5 in. wide. The blank areas are .75 x .75. From end to end (YH to YH or PH to PH) it is 10.25 in. Everything is skewed to 30 degrees. I use Titebond Quick and Thick and start with that middle YH rectangle which is 1.5 wide and 3 long. Glue it down making sure it is exactly at 30 degrees, weigh it down (no clamps) and let it set up. I cut a few .75 x .75 spacers to keep the symmetry – then I attach the 2 long PH pieces to the center YH where all center lines touch. There are only four different pieces to cut and the similar ones are all the same size. The “key” is the .75 x .75 spacing. If you maintain that, then it’s nothing more than gluing up a puzzle. Hope I’m clear, but if not, don’t hesitate to message.

Way more info than I need – definitely not going to replicate, was just curious about the glueing. I’m guessing the strips are 1/4” or less thick ?
