as usual, Paul, you pulled off another interesting project !!
well done. (I always wondered how those rosettes were done).

Nicely done Paul. You’re a braver man than I. I use an HDPE cutting board for glueing up some of my rosettes just in case I screw up. Easier and cheaper to remake a rosette rather than having to replace a top. Plenty of builders do it in place like you as well. Good looking rosette!

Looks nice. I thought about using HDPE as well and if I make more of the same size I just might. I think I might also start using store bought perfling. A lot easier than making my own out of wood.

Yeah, I usually make my own wood binding but buy the purfling as it can be pretty finicky making your own. There are specialty tools for it, but at my low production rate, buying it makes a lot more sense.
