Hi, I'm making a rook (the chess piece) in solidworks and I'm wondering how I can make these brick patterns (as seen below in the picture) around the outside. I tried making a plane,

drawing a brick pattern on that plane and then doing an extruded cut into one side of the rook but it doesn't really work. I see a revolved cut option but I don't know if that would be helpful or how to use it.
