First thanks all for your comments on Working At Cross were so kind, I got in the TOP 3..and it delighted me.
Now for this piece. I am calling it Working at Cross Purposes II is the same design, but “airier” so that ya’ll can see a little more of the “engineering” behind the scenes. Hope you enjoy it and your eyes do the happy dance!
Sapele about 10 inches diam and about 3/8ths inch thick

WOW! Another incredible piece! How many hours are you putting into these?

This is really beautiful too! I love sepele! It absolutely shimmers when finished properly. I bet in person this piece is even more stunning! Just lovely!

mmh: way too many!! tho this one took much less as it was a copy of the one before. I did not have to design, figure angles, alignments, etc. plus all the “jigs” etc. were already made.

Very excellent. The center piece looks a bit darker. Is it a separate or different type/piece of wood?
It is obvious that you put a lot of thought and effort into creating this.

I am guessing an indexed router jig? Cut in one pass, or hog out the middle and then cut to final width? I would love to see the jigs.

Hi Greg (adore your boxes) The center piece is turned from separate wood and inserted. Thanks for your comments

WDwerker..there are really no jigs as you think of them, that’s why I put the word jig in quotes.

Both of these are really wonderful – I want to pick this one up and run my finger through the grooves. A great honor to the wood.
