I saw a picture of the Guillemot Night Heron where the panels were stained different colors and then joined. I was wondering if there was a technique where you could put patterns on a single piece of plywood without cutting it up. I wasn't sure if that was possible. Don't laugh about this but could you route a thin line between stain colors and then stain within the borders. Seems like there should be an easier way to do this without putting puzzle joints all over the place.
I know most peole do hybrids to get those kind of designs but the Stitch and Glue type construction just seems more elegant to me.
