Brass Compass

10″x6″

A distinctive and challenging piece, with the unique and difficult requirement that the compass must be stable, but removable – by hand.

The trademark speech bubble was milled from Honduran Mahogany, with a distinct sloping top.  A well was precision routed to hold the functional brass compass.  A veneer was then printed with an elaborate marquetry pattern and veneered to the front of the speech bubble.
