  • A compass rose

    A bunch of months ago I asked my sister what she wanted me to make for her. She wanted a Celtic knot compass rose. She even sent me a Google image of what she wanted.
    I was reluctant to start on such a difficult project. I figured it had to be inlay and those are beyond my skill level.
    Friday I had the inspiration to just try it and see how it worked out.
    I cut this in 1/4" BB ply and then backed it with 1/8" BB ply.
    I used black walnut and golden oak stain for the color.
    I'm kind of pleased with it.
    It is one foot square, or... one square foot.


    I removed the picture of the example. It is a copyrighted photo.

        Stephen,
        I'm confused. In this image, I can't tell what I'm actually looking at. It looks like an inlay, but you said 1/4" with 1/8" backer??
        I'm unclear what discipline you're using....

        Beautiful, though...!!!!!

                  Sweeeeet job, but like Jim I am a bit confused too....who knew?
                  Is this an inlay or overlay? Whatever it is, your sister should be pleased, it looks great.

                    Great job Stephen. I really like it. BTW if your sister, for some odd reason does not like it, I will be more than happy to take it of your hands. LOL

                        Thank you all for your comments.
                        I cut it from one 12 x 12 x 1/4" BB plywood. I colored the pieces and put em back in. It looks like an inlay but is really a glued in tray puzzle I guess.

                          Great looking piece.

                          I would call it a variation on segmentation.

                            Yeah Markdavd, that's what I meant to say. It's a variation on segmentation.
                            Thanks, that sounds a lot better than a glued up tray puzzle.
