After doing a tumbling block pattern, I did a tumbling block with star burst. Then I built a padauk box under it. The other pattern (name?) I got off the net. I made the mistake of glueing luan to the back. It cupped bad. Live and learn.

You do good work! I like making these, but they do take a lot of time. Bummer about the Luan glue up.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
