  • Moon plaque

    Just made these two plaques from a pattern by Frieke. The pattern was for a puzzle but I thought it would make a nice nursery piece. Hope you don't mind me messing with your pattern Frieke. I decided to use just two contrasting woods. So what I did was stack cut the two different woods with the grains running in slightly opposite directions. After cutting I had two identical pieces and just mixed and matched. Because they were stack cut they were identical to each other and so the pieces fitted perfectly (almost). They are really segmentation pieces but look like intarsia, I suppose you could use even more different woods in your stack so long as your saw will cut the thickness.
    Anyway I thought you may like to see them, and of course all comments are welcome. I'm still at the bottom of the learning curve with type of thing but I really enjoy it. Thanks to Frieke.

    I love them! What a great idea. I like it to see what people do different with the same patterns. Really very nice and thanks for using my pattern,

      Hi Mick - great work pal. The bug's definitely bitten and there's no going back now and I can see you are already thinking of mass production cutting more than one piece at a time! Now do I get a prize for guessing which nursery this first pair is probably heading to? I guess not.... LOL!

      Congratulations also to Frieke for a really attractive design.

        Nice pattern, Frieke.

        Mick, some good work, and I like the idea of stack cutting to make two of them.

                  What a beautiful project, cut adaptively from a wonderful pattern. Thanks for the cutting Mick and thanks for the pattern Frieke.

                      Lovely pieces! The stack cutting certainly was a good idea. They both look great.
