A compass rose
A bunch of months ago I asked my sister what she wanted me to make for her. She wanted a Celtic knot compass rose. She even sent me a Google image of what she wanted.
I was reluctant to start on such a difficult project. I figured it had to be inlay and those are beyond my skill level.
Friday I had the inspiration to just try it and see how it worked out.
I cut this in 1/4" BB ply and then backed it with 1/8" BB ply.
I used black walnut and golden oak stain for the color.
I'm kind of pleased with it.
It is one foot square, or... one square foot.
I removed the picture of the example. It is a copyrighted photo.

I'm confused. In this image, I can't tell what I'm actually looking at. It looks like an inlay, but you said 1/4" with 1/8" backer??
I'm unclear what discipline you're using....

Sweeeeet job, but like Jim I am a bit confused too....who knew?
Is this an inlay or overlay? Whatever it is, your sister should be pleased, it looks great.

Great job Stephen. I really like it. BTW if your sister, for some odd reason does not like it, I will be more than happy to take it of your hands. LOL
