Some of you may remember the above photo from my second post.
I have been having a terrible time with this ... not enjoying the challenge of making this into something that pleased my eye.
Finally I decided that the root of the problem was the first block that I made.
So I cut it up ... the result below came after way too many tryouts but I like it a whole lot better.
I'll leave it up for a while & decide whether or not it's finished.
