Well I can’t say this design has never been done, I’d just never seen it. And I’ve searched and looked at hundreds of cube illusions and impossible shapes. So I was proud of myself for coming up with this pattern but very disappointed with the end result. I cut all the pieces from the same pre-glued (iron on) veneer and colored 2 sides of each cube with a stain marking pen. Yeah it shows. That’s the last time I’ll do that. I’ll be using different woods and nothing but natural colors from now on.

When I saw this on the page I just had to click on it. Marker on not It’s an eye catcher for sure. I can’t wait to see the one you make without using markers. I like it and I wish I knew how to do it.
Nice job!

Looks great! Would love to see a how-to. Can’t seem to wrap my head around the process you used.

Bar stool? Bar stool? BAR STOOL? Man, you create something like that and let somebody set their butt on it? If I could dream up a design like that—let alone execute it—I’d kill anybody who even touched it, let alone sit on it.LOL
Fantastic design! Fantastic piece! Can’t wait for the next one.
Have a good’un
