Nicely done and wonderful wood and finish
How did you achieve the angle on the end of your splines? done on a table saw?

Abie the top is done on the table saw cut at a 11 degree angle top side facing down. The spline are added before the sides are trimmed leaving a step down version of splines.

Thanks Pat!

Beautiful work. You might have to change your name to ‘Quilted Maple’!! Great combinations of wood. Now I know how to use the small pieces of rosewood I have. Great accents possibilities.

Wilson each one is better than the one before it! That quilted maple seems to move or dance as you look at it. Matched with the rich deep tone of the cocobolo, this is a beautiful box.
