WOW, it is very nice. I was waiting for a new project from you and as I expected it was one of your best, and one of our best.

I really like the feature ring that you did. I notice that grain is up and down from you other rings that are side to side. Have you done this with any other segmented projects? If so, do you see much wood movement with the grains going two directions? My initial thoughts are that the ring has so many small cut pieces that the movement is distributed and the grains are relieved by the cuts but I have not tried this and looking for some feedback from someone that has done this. Thanks.

since the grain in the adjoining piece will be different I look at it like a laminated beam,they never twist or warp because forces are opposite,so far no problems

depends on your area of the country, and the moisture swings. this may or may not have wood movement issues in this configuration. I like your featureband design

Thanks Jim for answering the question on the feature ring. I will have to give that try.
