Internet woodworking forums are great places. You can observe or enter into a debate about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, and you can follow that on a tangent about what’s the best type of pin for the angels to dance on, and someone will likely come along to sell you exactly the right pin. Every now and then, useful information gets passed along. One technique appears with regular frequency, so often in fact that I’ve been convinced that it’s a right of passage that almost every woodworker goes through when they decide to design something on their own. Something about the arrangement in the image is appealing, it looks cool, and while it takes some skill, it isn’t that demanding. So a lot of people try it, even though the execution of this usually leads to a hard lesson in wood movement. This could be a door, or a table top; a solid wood panel surrounded by a contrasting wood mitered at the corners.
