This 11” triangle started out as a 14” by 16” award frame (1 of 20)I made for the volenteers at a theater.
I don’t remember what went wrrong in the first place, it end up in my burn box. Just one of those projects that is never going to work right. I cut down and reglued it twice. Then some how lost a piece, that is when it went into the burn box.
I was driving in the country, and ended up behind an Amish buggy with an orange triangle on the back. The rest is history as they say.
The tirangle is cherry, maple and walnut. the base is a piece of walnut with a 10 deg rabbit
The based is a piece of spalted maple

all screwed together. The clock is 3.5” in a walnut veneered mdf,

I added the pens because it looked like it need something else, and I like brass.

So I have no scrap pile, just projects waiting to be discovered.

Thank you for looking. Joel

Nice look. Elegant and clean.

Also, reminds me of the Masonic all-seeing eye symbol.
