Cut 2 contrasting blanks, each blank is cut into 4 equal squares. Glue 2 of the dark on opposite corners, lights in the other. This will give you 2 blanks. Then you will slice each blank into pieces to glue as you restack with a rotation between layers. If you want what I call "cement" lines, add in a contrasting piece of veneer at each glue joint. Confused?

Are you planning on inserting a filler after the kerf is taken out because if not you will not be able to do this. You would be better served making a stave cutting sled and cutting at the angle needed for as many pieces as needed.

This just happens to be a compound mitered stave project. You would not need the compound cut.

Your definition of brick pattern would be better served if you have a photo reference because that is not how to do the brick pattern that I am thinking.

He is doing it correctly for a standard brick pattern.

Letís say you want a brick of four color woods plus a black line between each color.
Further, letís say said blank must be 5/8Ē when turned.

Cut 4 billets to a finished square dimension of 1/4Ē.
Glue black construction paper to one face of each billet, then glue all 4 billets together such that the composed blank is bare wood to black paper.

After this glue-up dries, slice into 1/4Ē, 5/16Ē, or whatever height brick you want.
Now, glue these back together, rotating each row as you go.
Viola! Brickwork!

If you want 3, 5, 6 or 8 bricks per row, youíll want to make wedges (pizza slices) rather than square billets and youíll make one row at a time, then stack and glue.

Take a look at this instructive post on LJís by my friend Darryl Masterson:

Prototypes #2: Building Prototypes - Group 1 - by darryl @ LumberJocks.com ~ woodworking community

Hope this helps you.

There are several ways to make "Standard Brick Pattern Blanks." I actually think the OP is working with one of the more difficult methods. It will certainly work with his method, but I agree that there are easier ways. But, find a method that you are comfortable with, and refine it.

I did two classes at the last MPG on making these, I will be happy to share the handout (via, PM and e-mail - the file and photos are difficult on IAP treads). And there are probably zillions of UTubes, and Barry Gross' book has an excellent section; although he has a few different methods than I, his may be more accurate.

Have FUN!

EDIT: Gary was faster than I; got distracted looking for photos. What Gary noted is the same as what I was suggesting.

That is basically what I did about 10 years ago. I did it once (sliced everything perfect) but I just happened to get it right the first time! It was more DIFFICULT the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th try. However that stripe proportions (in the link below) was not forgiving; all had to be perfect.

Can't wait to see the result of your work.

No need to cut diagonals. 4 quarters and keep turning when stacking. Again unless I am not understanding him. Or as I mentioned in my post make staves and use as many colors as you want as long as the amount of staves equal the angles needed. If that is done the way he drew that up that is a first for me to see. I would love to see the working parts before you put it together.
