    … by the way, just guessing … you’ll get a interesting pattern by repeating this kind of “star rectangle” design.

    Nice grid! That’s a good way to practice patterns like this.

    You could extend several of the cuts all the way to the center for a more complete carving. That way there wouldn’t be a small empty circle space in the center.

    Keep on ‘chippin’!

    I want to start off by saying thank you to all who offered ideas. Some I did try, though they may work for some did not work so well for me, and that’s ok, that’s what makes us all unique.

    The one I found works really well for me Marty demonstrated during the webinar. As I approach the center I increase the angle (>60). When doing center out I start with the increased angle and bring it back to 60 to finish out.

    I am still working on a practice board, but once I finish my luggage tags I will post a picture.
