Pulling a saw was not easy as it seem. I already sliced the hexaspiral into 3 coaster like pieces. Even though I am experienced in ripping by hand, I still have some difficulty. The saw try to bend inwards or outwards making uneven cut. I was expecting this and so I gave an allowance of 9mm thick to at least have a final thickness of 8 or less after grinding. So here are they….
Here is the thickness photo….
The one that is darker is already coated with sanding sealer. As you know this is an endgrain and absorbs more sealer and discolorization will be present. But I think it is alright.
The best plan is really to make it as a box. But I have another idea that can be suprisingly good. However the good thing about making it into a box… It will be 3 pieces.
