This is an easy compound cut flower. The petals and leafs are simple to cut. I used some construction grade pine for the compound cuts. I think the flower center is padauk. It was just a scrap I had laying around. The stem is maple.
All the pieces are just glued together. Glue the first 5 petals to the flower center in a star pattern. Then glue the next 5 petals behind the first 5. Sand flat spots on the petals to make gluing easier.
I left the stem square but it might look better if you contour the edges round.
Study the assembly pictures if you need a guide.
