I am well into my project now, as you can see I have made the table top and had the legs professionally turned and now I am ready to construct the table and finish it. The lines of the soccer field were done by using a 10mm straight cut router bit and moving along a fence for a straight cut, 10mm deep. Then strips of jarrah were cut 10mm wide and 13mm thick to insert into the grooves. All worked out perfectly!
Now I plan to make a wooden soccer ball (truncated icosahedron) to display in the middle as an ornament type thing. Any tips on constructing a soccer ball that anyone could share would be very appreciated!
