I have been obsessed for the past 6 months with the sort of parquetry where you precisely cut long strips (with cross-sections of: 60°-60°-60° triangle; 60°-120°-60°-120° diamond; square; an the like), glue them up into geometric patterns, and take thin, patterned slices off the end to cover items with. I’ve posted 2 projects here, but I had a lot of problems with them.
The Japanese craftsmen I’ve seen actually put the pieces in mould-like receivers and plane them to exact dimensions, and yet I still see some pattern drift in some of their work.
Have any of you seen any on-line tutorials or reference material on this or similar work? I have only found one on decorative inlay banding and he only deals with pieces a few inches long.

One- or two-foot-long pieces is my target. Then I plan to bandsaw off 1/8” to 1/4” thick slices. My original planned application was decorative feature stripping & borders for wood floors.
