Whatever comes into my mind with respect to small pieces of wood in my shop, let it be done. There are lot of boards running around in my house. Done last Dec 2013 during my vacation time are various works of boards and some coasters…. I cannot call them finished but here are the late photos to post:

This is will become a box using z-miter . I need to sand the inside part before assembly.
Here is the expected shape….

Here is another board…

And another….

And another…

And the coasters….

The octagonal…

The pentagonal…

Just here and whatever it will be… Have a nice day always!

Bert your work is amazing! What are you going to make from the pieces shown just above the coasters? They don’t look like you can make a box from them but what do I know.

How do you make all this fit together so well???

Great work, thanks for posting!

Great looking patterns. I like the pentagon with the star. Hope you can post pictures of how you made some of these designs with tight fitting pieces.
