    Another Compass Rose Tutorial

    Some time back, I did a tutorial on how to make a veneer compass rose. After that tutorial, some people contacted me and pointed out that the rose required a special 22.5 degree template, which many people might not have.

    To remedy that, I just completed another tutorial for a compass rose that only requires a 45 degree triangle.

    I hope it will be of value to you.

    Mike,

    That's great! I've always wanted to work with veneers and a rose compass seems like a "must do". (After I get the real "must do" list done first.)
    Thanks for taking the time to put together the tutorial.

    Thanks Mike! I'm going to use your technique someday. Also enjoyed all the other info and inspirational work on your website! I'm veneer illiterate. How do you mate-up the background veneer to the compass rose? Thanks again, Barry

    I'm going to write that up soon - especially since a couple of people have asked for this. I'll post here when I do it - maybe in a week???

    One other thing people have asked for - so I'll post the info here - is a tutorial on doing the sand shaded fans that are shown in the panel. I wrote up a tutorial on that a while back and I just posted it to my web site - it's in pdf. You can see it here. Or go to my web site and look at the entry for 8/24/08.

    Thanks to everyone who posted here for your very kind words. Your encouragement makes the work of putting the tutorials together worth while.
