I have been looking at pictures of the Carpenter Star and really would like to try one for my husband.
1. there is an optical illusion created that looks like short 4 x 4s and 2 x 2s lumber. By using a different light color for the ones that create the 4 x 4, will that spoil the overall look or effect of the star?
2. Is this pattern called the Carpenter star because of this illusion?
Thanks for any help or if you have done one like that, would you post a picture?
