Thanks Oliver. As for hours, never kept track, but if I were to guess, I would between 200-300 hours.

Thank you! I can't stop looking at it, it's so amazing. I'm actually thinking if I would dare to give something like this a try. 3 such panels would make an incredibly awesome room divider for the new living space we're creating downstairs. I have to give this some more thoughts and I have to read more about it.

Kind regards,
Oliver

Wow... that's jaw-droppingly beautiful.

Are you using traditional hand tools - or using something like a BCT Jointmaker Pro?

Holy cow!

Do you calculate in advance (after designing) how many of each size part will be needed and then go about manufacturing all the parts before you start construction or is the process more casual?

Michael,
The only thing I planned was the original 2"x2" grid pattern. Everything else is designed on the fly. Once I figure out the design I want, I go ahead and start rough cutting the pieces. For example, there are 100 little flowers and each one has 16 pieces that is one size, thus 1600, and 8 pieces of another, thus 800. Once cut, I chisel the angles on each end. The angles that I work with in this design are, 45, 22.5 and 67.5. If your grid is square, all of the pieces should fit like a puzzle, if not, you make very small modification to the pieces  that don't fit. Lots of repetitive work. Make sure your chisel is super sharp.

Cheers,
JC

Beautiful craftsmanship! What wood do you use? Maple for the most part or is it something like basswood?

The frame is oak and the panels are basswood. No finish, everything is natural.

I admire that. To the moon. I can't fathom that amount of patience. Neither would my wife fathom me being that patient. Kudos to you, sir. Are you available to babysit my grandkids? They require the same level of patience. :)
