Re: Strip: What did I do wrong here, and how can I

: It's Rob Macks' Fire Star. Forms are cut and spaced exactly as he
: laid it out. Also, they are 3/16" strips as he recommends.

Are the strips cove and beed or rolling bevel? Have to use care with the then strips, they'll easily form whatever shape you put them into be it the correct shape or some other. I like the thin strips, but they cause almost as many problems as they cure ;)
