that walnut is off the chain.
Indeed. And the choice of thinner ply, finish, and you kept the knot. Like the secondary cage shape, too. So clean.

Long story short, I used as many of the knots as I could manage, in an attempt to recreate a "Starry Night" sorta backdrop. "As above so below" and all that. Anyway, I like the knot, whether you kept it intentionally or no. Seems Andy even has a few globular clusters and planetary nebulae of his own. Bet he'd like ours, too.

I just know that when I was gonna go with birch, a gander at the old cedar planks convinced me otherwise. Many here are fond of sayin that nature doesn't make straight lines (except for crystals?), and I'm mighty fond of Andy Goldsworthy's art. Even dabbled in some natural pieces myself.
ok knots are cool, very cool, but man made footballs are only good for sunday afternoons and having a catch with the kids, not for birch ply.
I love english brown oak with lots of flake for the reason you stated above but not with footballs.

Those biscuits ARE horrendous. Never seen 'em on the birch or finer ply, tho.

Further thought is necessary...
