I did!

They are all fitted together as if they were on the floor. But I can see how the flash shadow makes the crossing piece look like it's laying over everything. Having them laying on the boxes instead of a flat surface may also be creating the mistaken illusion.

Oh I see now. An optical illusion I guess, my bad.

So now what do you think?

Is this something that's been done before? I know changing direction is nothing new, but to do it for one board and then go back again, it doesn't seem like it should be any problem, outside of measuring correctly.

For all practical purposes it's the same thing Jim showed in his second and third photos. As long as the boards have room to expand at the opposite end you should be fine.
