Here is an image of the roughed out first in a series of stars and stripes. I'd like to eventually do 50 of them, all different but all with thirteen stripes. Some round, some domed, some with the "stars" in the middle, or all four corners. Different colors as well, no reason they have to be red, white, and blue. I've also already bought some copper roofing nails that I may use for "stars". I also might just use the bird's-eye maple, leaving the bird's-eyes alone to imply stars. I like the idea of making them multi-level so that the star section sits above the rest. With this first one, the bird's-eye maple section is about 3/16th of an inch proud.
