Very nice – Larry (degoose) will like this one.

Did you happen to count how many pieces it took? Were they all cut at 60 degrees?

The tumbling block boards are some of my favorites. You did a nice job on this one. I second the walnut boarder – really adds the finishing touch.

Wow optical contusion, haha. Very nice look. I do end grain so I tried a long time trying to make this end grain. Do not think possible. I posted a nice end grain with triangles and worked all morning to get your effect end grain. Still working in my brain on it.

I use maple, cherry and walnut combos a lot.

Great job! You can tell your angles are perfect, which is really hard to do with such a long run of these. Best one I’ve seen.
