How did you do the ribbon? The wood combination is excellent. The ribbon is elegantly beautiful and the most impressive. Marvelous work!

This project is very cool. The instructions are in American Woodworker, Aug/Sept 2012. The ribbon stock is laminated, one set of laminations is thin for the flat ribbons, and one about 3/4” thick and scroll sawed (or band sawed) in the bow shapes. The pattern for bows/ribbons can be downloaded from here:
