I drew the compass in Inkscape and imported it to the Glowforge app. I cut out 4 of them in 4 different colors of plywood. Those were Walnut, Cherry, Maple and Basswood. I then mixed and matched them and glued the pieces on a piece of Draft board. I took three of the 4 completed compasses and made these 3 boxes. They are made of Red Oak, Walnut and Bloodwood. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
These are great, it’s hard for me to choose which one i like best.
I think they are outstanding! How did you deal with kerf on the inner cut pieces?
Very nice group of boxes. I love the middle one.
Yep, the middle one. They are all nice though.
I am voting far left!! Great work!!!
I just noticed that the title of the post is exactly the same as the category name. Thought I was seeing double.
Congratulations @allind256, they are all beautiful. A lot attention to detail.
nice job! I have to learn how to do inlays!
I had two things that I solved with one solution. The kerfs made for less than ideal gaps so I just made sure the pieces were evenly spaced before the glue dried. Second, the proof grade plywood was of various thicknesses and being plywood, I couldn’t sand them flush. I ended up putting a thin layer of epoxy to fill the gaps and level the surface. Even when looking closely, the gaps in he kerfs are barely noticeable.
They all look great
I like the two darker ones the best
Sorry, I’m more creative with my crafts than my words!
Thanks for all of the positive comments.
These are gorgeous!
Well done! Beautiful!
Gorgeous! I like the middle on best, as well.
