The zigzag design is a piece that will really show off your woodworking skill. It's actually more difficult that the diamond because you must match both the top and bottom points. You can confidently take on the zigzag challenge with the ZigZag designer. You start by  defining a symmetric Lamination Board (you can assemble it either symmetricly or not) and specify the size and cutting angle to make diagonal strips that, with alternate flipping, become a zigzag board.

The ZigZag designer is an advanced tool that can be operated from the Segmented Project Planner. The primary result of your design session is a report you can take to the workshop and start construction. You also get a picture of the design you can use to "paint" segments within an SPP project. The designer has a complete help file system that includes detailed instructions on how to make your own zigzag pattern.

The design parameters for the active row of your project are displayed in the upper-left corner for easy reference while you tune your design to fit the segment sizing of that ring.
