Let me know if any issues? You may need to use Inkscape to ungroup if you only want some or need to move 'em around…

Very cool… what material did you use?

It was some 0.18 inch maple(cherry?) ply I picked up at woodworkers source and dyed orange with powdered wood dye (mixed yellow and red) mixed with water based polyurethane.

The quarter sheets aren’t bad and I’ve had good luck staining and dying them

Wood dye, eh? URL?

No clue what he uses, but this is what I have been using.

My local woodcrafters has it, and cheaper.

Woodcraft, Rockler and Craft Supplies probably all carry wood dyes these days. I haven’t bought any in ages though.

This is what I used

add to a little hot water then to any water based finsih (or as is), but adding to a clearcoat does two steps in one… and you can mix colors, etc.
