Looking for advice on laying out an oval starburst. I'm new to carving and would like to ad a starburst to the front of a draw on a table I am making.


Hi Robert, Welcome to the world of carving! I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "starburst". I am imagining something with a lot of sharply pointed rays coming from a center. You might be able to locate a pattern for this as an inlay design or marquetry. My suggestion would be to google "starburst inlay" and there are a lot of designs that come up. You need to put "inlay" into the search, or you will get all sorts of images of the Starburst candy 🙂 Good luck!
