Really nice Martyn. I like this one a lot.

HorizontalMike ...

Wow! I really like this, as it seems relatively easy to accomplish, yet the end product turns out utterly fantastic!

BTW, what did the glue up of the block look like BEFORE the final “4” pieces made the final block? Was there a single layup of layers that were then resawn? Or possibly 2-layups that were resawn to make that final pattern?
