Thats pretty neat. I like how people are using wood, and other materials to make the optical illusions.
How did you cut the laminate to size and shape?

So would M.C. Hammer. Nice job.

Interesting to me is your material(formica). With wood laminate, one typically makes it proud, then sands it all flush. With the laminate, you can’t sand it to make it flush. An extra level of difficulty. Well done.

Nice optical illusion. I bet that was some work getting all the pieces to fit just right

Thx guys for the kind words guys, yes it was a bit of trial and error with the different materials but once you get it down it gets easer

My childhood dentist had this picture on the light above to keep our minds occupied while he drilled away. It is a very classic illusion that grabs people. Very cool.
