Thanks Ukejon!

I've been trying to get this design to work for weeks now. It's 93 pieces and every one of them is different. I wanted this design put right into the Spruce top. In order to maintain the strength with all of those cutouts I have a wide maple ring set into the inside which gives the needed support. I've thrown away two tops so far and hundreds of cut out pcs of Verawood, walnut, and Yellowheart. It's coming together though as I'm working the bugs out of this new technique.
