I’m trying to figure out what might not be appropriate?It looks like 2 pieces of pine with the top screw doing the holding and the side screw is doing nothing. I can’t say more with out another view????

It seems the little triangular highlight on the end is what really makes the illusion.

Please note, screw located under thumb appears to be driven from top to bottom connecting the two pieces on top of each other. The other screw near the finger tips is driven from right to left connecting the two pieces side-by-side. In the area under the fingertips the image transitions from the two pieces being on top of each other to side-by-side.

If only photoshop tricks worked in the real world. Think of the amazing shapes woodworkers could create without a single bent lamination or spokeshave. As for me, I’ll take a good splinter over carpel tunnel syndrome any day.

Sure it’s possible. Matter of fact, it happens to me all the time.
That’s what happens when I get a twist in my board stretcher. But if you lube it with doppler grease and then clean it off with rotor wash, it goes back to normal.
I’m just sayin’ . . .

if you look closely at the grain by the thumb, then you can see that small section was shaved down at an angle. The grain is still sticking up, whereas the rest of the block has nice smooth grain patterns. Of course this is on the block to the right.
Then again, my assessment may be wrong.
