Wooden Pool Triangles

This year for my brother's birthday I made him a cherry and maple pool triangle.  The three sides are made from a single blank of cherry with a swoosh of maple glued in as a laminate.  To see how this is done, see the wooden bookmark post on this site.  The three corners are equilateral triangles and rounded recesses are cut into each so that the balls touch each other and rack solidly (lesson learned from the Mark I version of these...).  The rack is finished with 7 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer and polished to a mirror finish just like on the perfect guitar finish found elsewhere in this blog.
