        When I saw this pattern, I was worried about the bottom right hand piece. Is it as narrow as it appears?

          Well, yes it is, now that you mention it. That actually started to break, but i caught it in time, hit it with a touch of wood glue and the repair was completely invisible. The glue actually reinforced the piece so it's not it's not so fragile.

              Very timely. How thick is the wood?

                I like that one alot. It should be make out of "heartwood" or redwood for the heart and maple for the border.

                  Bob, the wood is 1/4" Baltic birch.

                    Cool. I just bought 1/4" Birch plywood from Lowe's tonight and plan to make this design for my first project. All of their wood is slightly warped, but from the old threads I read, the warp often goes away once you cut the wood (stress is removed - wood can move).

                        Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                        Thanks Rolf,
                        I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                        Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                        This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
