I made these a while ago, but forgot to post them. I made three, and gave the better two away before i could take pictures of them. The pieces of the one pictured slipped out of alignment during glue-up. They are made from padauk and maple. Finished with some sort of oil-varnish blend that is holding up well. Dimensions are about 1/4” x 3 1/2” x 3 1/2”.

Timzo, I would be really happy if you copied it. That’s the point of lumberjocks, to share knowledge and projects.

Beautifull. It’s on my fav list now.

QUESTION: I suggest the triangles are glued endgrain to endgrain? Is it strong enough?

Bas, the triangle are glued endgrain to endgrain, they seem strong enough so far. They’ve held up for over a year. But I might try using small dowel or biscuits if i built it again.
