    Tutorial: Making a Sand Shaded Fan

    I just completed a tutorial on how to make a veneer sand shaded fan. It's available here. It's about a 2MB pdf.

    A sand shaded fan is shown in the attached picture.

    Hi Michael,
    Thank you very much for the time and effort you have gone to in sharing this extremely well documented tutorial. It seems clear and concise and flows very well, I really enjoyed it, as well as the segmented rose I viewed earlier in the week.

    Excellent tutorial, Mike. You keep posting write-ups like this one and the compass rose one, and I'll have no choice but to get some veneering tools. You make it look like something even a rookie hack like me can do. Thanks a lot for sharing the info and giving such a good presentation.
