Malcom Tibbetts was kind enough to get me pointed in the right direction and this is what I ended up with. 60 pieces of walnut and maple that are 7" high and 6" at the widest point. Danish oil finish, to be buffed in a couple of days. All 4 photos are of the same piece from different view points.
I also found out that Malcom's definition of "very easy" is a lot different than mine! Thanks to Malcom for inspiration and his help!
