Working together

work in progress

I found a piece of board in the garage and decided to use it to make a few smaller pieces.

This of course is far more fiddly and cutting the strips accurately can be a problem. So this is work in progress on my first diptych, with a vaguely symmetrical theme. Watch this space…
