Awesome idea! Could you by any chance send me some pictures of that wormy cherry? I have some wormy lumber we took out of a barn and no one seems to know whether it's wormy cheery or hickory… Looks like that cherry. Beautiful stuff! Where'd you get it?

That is nice! Creative, to say the least. How did you figure the angles needed?

Thank you all for the very kind feedback. I really appreciate it.

The design was actually the idea of the customer. He sent me some images and notes and then I worked up the drawing off of those. He's a very creative fellow and the credit definitely goes to him.

When trying to determine the angles, I would have preferred (for convenience sake) to have used 45° miters. However, that resulted i a "W" that was way too splayed and weird looking. My next try was 30°/60° and that worked out much better.

The wormy cherry looks just like standard cherry, but has the added element of tiny holes and trail marks from exposure to a wood-boring creature. The impact upon the wood is not structurally damaging and definitely adds additional character to the piece.

Thanks again and happy woodworking!
