This design is called Working At Cross Purposes. I made two earlier with natural wood color. this one I bleached the Sapele and then used an acrylic paint.called, pearlized turquoise . about 10 inches in diameter.
this color is totally awesome in real life, I hope it translates in the picture. Enjoy

You should do a blog on how you so these. I think it would be interesting to many of us.

Well done.

Exciting work. I can see these as an artistic player at a gallery.
And I can see the shimmer in the color. Very sharp…

I can understand the title, but you never do work at cross purposes, you sole purpose seems to be to confuse
and fascinate us. You have me thinking that the optical illusion of some of the front pieces actually crossing
under the others could be achieved with a lot of work, but winter is coming on and that is a slow time for playing in the shop and I will have to try this, probably won’t succeed, but it will be fun. Thank you for sharing.
