First time tiling the new versions Borromean Rings patterns. Really get to see how the individual strips work together to make the larger pattern. One of my original pattern designs. Nice to have it as true Yosegi; each strip is planed off the master pattern block as 0.10mm thin shavings.

Most of the major woodworking done for this batch of Jewelry Boxes. These are always fun because I get to show off some fun woods, including QS Sycamore. Next step is applying Yosegi for the tops.

After having to resawing 8ft of 4” wide Bloodwood to make the cases, nice to slap in a new @highlandwoodworking WoodSlicer blade and resaw 24ft of QS Paulownia like it is butter. Time to make the drawers for the puzzle chests.
