I think it is a nice mix of materials and techniques. Something new, something old. Checkers anyone?
Seriously, the checkers are nice.
Is there anything you would do differently?
Thanks, I like them too, they are 8*8 so if anyone want to make pieces
I took me 5 attempts to figure out how to get stuff to align while gluing up misiacs... Thankfully I started with a diamond pattern so I only messed up one checkers log and have checkers for a couple more guitars already made.
As far as doing something deferently, I think this design turned out pretty well balanced so I will probably use it again, but the overall pattern has plenty of scope for flexibility, for example I made a rainbow pattern for between checkers, even cut the pink veneer myself but didn't like it in the end
The outer rings could be supplemented on the outside, but the optical illusion from the black white boaders and overall clear geometric shapes I think I will keep. Not to say I won't design others, who knows.
This is my second design so to speak, the first design kind of just thought me a lesson about using color and sizing, so I cut it out.
One think for sure I will attempt to make ressets around a former with hhg instead of directly into the sound board.
