There are 2 canvases in the file.  Burn each.

 

While they look identical, Canvas 1 is slightly larger than canvas 2.

 

I used Cherry plywood, but it works with any material. Acrylic looks great too.

Step2: Line up the pieces and glue

Start with the largest piece from canvas 1 and line up the largest piece from canvas 2 on the score lines of the canvas 1 piece.

 

Glue using a small line of CA glue.  I like Starbond Medium thick because I think it gives the best combination of open time and cure time.

 

Press the pieces together for about 15-30 seconds until they're bonded. I use a piece of marble tile to press them together.

 

Continue adding layers by alternating pieces from canvas 1 and 2 until all are used.

Step3: Clean up squeeze out

Clean up squeeze out with acetone and cotton swabs.
