This was an experiment. I took a piece of 1/2” mahogany and sliced it into four sections using my jigsaw. the lines were arbitrary. Using narrow strips of maple I glued it back together. I really liked how it turned out. An inlay but not quite. Maybe there is a term for this, I dont know. Regardless I turned it into a lid for a box. Mahogany and walnut with aromatic cedar base. Added a half mortice lock (another first for me). All the joints is half lapped and the corners mitered. Finished with Danish oil and Poly.
Thanks for looking. Comments welcomed.
