Today I finally finished a new project which involved building a mobius band and inscribing the text from 2 Corinthians 13:14 onto it. It was a substantial challenge but very enjoyable.

Hope you all enjoy it!

Bill,
You’ve been so quiet I was starting to worry! Great looking piece!!
I’m looking at a great commission for our church (OK, I’m not getting paid but I am commissioned to do it!) as we move from our old location into a new one.
Thanks for sharing!
Mike

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.” KJV, of many.

You have taken great words to help unite us all, and used them in a special way. Thank you for sharing.

Excellent work.

Did you figure out all the angles and cut the pieces individually then stack them together?

I laminated a square plank of poplar. Then I ran the plank through my bandsaw to fashion it into a long triangular plank. This plank I See you there! Into short sections 1” wide, wth sides tapered to 4 degrees.

I glued the pieces together without clamp, rubbing them together till the glue had suction, and then held them still for about 45 seconds. Since the contact surfaces were all end grain the glue bonded quickly. Each piece was rotated slightly in order to form a curve.

Thanks for the description of how you cut and assembled it. Very nice. Love the text, how it is done and what it says.
