A project I completed about three months ago. As I recall, this one took about a week (off and on) to finish. The progression photos shows how I do it – there is probably a much easier way. At the end, you’re really having to sneak up on a cut line and you’re down to the nth degree of an angle – the Incra 1000SE miter is a perfect tool to accomplish this.

Woods: Walnut, White Oak and Quarter Sawn Sycamore.

Backer: Maple plywood.

Frame: White Oak with Wenge corner splines.

Finish: Natural Danish Oil.

that is mezmerizing – I look and look and

absolutely right about the incra miter gauge. I have 5 of them, each have their own job to do

I love your projects and wish I had the capability to try one! They are fun to look at and look at some more and just let your eyes see each in different ways. Fascinating.

Wow! Mustanger – Did you find this in the Impossible World figure library or in your own brain?

Phil32 – too intricate for my brain. I don’t use formal plans. I print a picture of something that interests me and is within my capabilities, get out the calipers, measure, then adapt the figures to the size I would like to achieve. I work in metric because the math is easier and the measurement is more finite to a whole number. The Geometry comes a little easy to me but I find myself using the online geometric calculators quite a bit.

Very well done. Look at it one way, it looks like a snowflake. Then look again it looks like steps. Mind boggling, in a very good way. Great job
