Hey everyone. I'm making a seas for a friend and I wanted to make handle with a diamond shaped pattern similar to the attached picture. Possibly out of white ash and blood wood. I'd like to avoid synthetics if possible. I was thinking of cutting out the diamond shapes and gluing them together in the desired pattern but I wanted to be sure that that would hold up to use. Would it be better to go standard wood glue, or epoxy? Would combining those two woods be a bad idea and not hold up well? Any other ideas o. What would be the best way to make the red and white checkerboard pattern? Many thanks!
