I,m hooked on that compass design now Ed. When I draw it out, I come up with included angles of the points being 37 and 53 degrees. I suppose anything that adds up to 90 is OK, but is there a standard for those angles?? Thanks in advance.

IF. you build it in four sub-assemblies as I did, any angles that add up to 90 will work.
Many use more acute angles for the cardinal points and some add more points than I did.

As I added a rim with some visual interest I intentionally kept my design simple, four cardinal points and four intercardinal points.
Many designs also add eight secondary intercardinal points.

You can perform an image search for cardinal points, compass medallion, compass rose or nautical rose. You will find designs that inspire you and probably give you a starting point.

Awesome, to coin a phrase, Ed. I, for one, would be interested in the construction pics.

Ed, your instructions really helped or I would probably be trying to saw up small triangles and glueing them together!! Material is the same, Cherry, Walnut and Maple. The large Vs are only because my scraps of Cherry were too short to reach the 11" diameter. Sad so I spaced them out with the Walnut. Needs to be put back on the chuck and sanded better and refinished for a better gloss. Thanks for the help. Geo.

Wow Ed, I always thought that you were just a nice guy that gave out help and advice...you actually know how to turn Smiley   What an understatement, that piece is beautiful.

Thanks for sharing and thanks for "all" the help and advice you provide for so many of us.

George, your piece looks good  Thumbs Up
Glad I could help
One thing I've learned (taught myself) is this, glue big, cut small.
Just a simple rule I remind myself of to keep what seem like difficult assemblies easy. I also find you wind up with a more accurate alignment.
Small pieces, especially those that aren't square, can easily break, can be difficult to hold during glue ups and they can swell and alter their shape (primarily at the points of triangular segments) just by absorbing the glue. This is all avoided by gluing larger assemblies and cutting to size.

Thanks Dick, I appreciate the kind words.
