My sister-in-law and my mom are both R N 's I developed this pattern from a piece of clip art. I wanted to do it as an inlay so I tried a little experiment .
I stacked 1/8 maple, mahogany and red oak ply. I made all the inside cuts and lettering, then found my bevel .....6 1/2 degrees for this one, and cut the outline. Just as I hoped, the maple fell into the mahogany and the mahogany fell into the oak ......both fit perfectly
I goobered up the top outline around the ball, but there is no recovering when cutting a bevel just had to roll with it
As a bonus, the caduceus from the red oak ( which was on the bottom ) will be made into a plaque for a friend of mine . 3 gifts in one cut

Robert, this is just awesome! You continue to amaze me with your ability. As far as the "goobering" ... it's not even noticeable!

I love it man!

G'day Robert,
Nice job.
You're right about no going back when you make a blue while bevel cutting.

My most often made mistake is starting the cut in the wrong direction.
