In quilting circles, this design is called the “Ohio Star”. Why? earthly idea. But, being from Ohio, it seemed like a natural progression to recreate. I had Purpleheart in three different tones plus the grain direction and sunlight help to show the distinction of the pieces. Maple is the contrast. Frame is Cedar. I used a water based semi gloss poly for the finish hoping that will keep the tones different for a longer time knowing Purpleheart will naturally darken over time.

Awesome….nice job.
