    Compass Rose Tray

    This is a Christmas present for my Dad. I have several more to do, but they won't be quite this complicated!

    The pattern is from Mike Henderson. Thanks Mike!

    Great job. While the teacher can help, it's the student who accomplishes things.

    And you're welcome.

    Thanks everyone! This was a fun project and the inlay and veneer add a whole new dimension to my skill set!
