Wouldn’t you know. I cut part of the border from paduak. I was real careful to get it just perfect. It Ain’t. I’ll get if fixed up because I once again have a nervous tendency to err on the side of “Too Big”. You know – shaving 86 of these suckers will once again – suck.
Grandpa Len sent me a very kindly note telling me I need to put this creation on a backer. Well – he’s right of course. I was already courting disaster by going as far as I did. I had to straighten the thing out once. Len even gave me a compelling reason to add the backer. People make a bad habit of sitting on tables. Even though this project shares a lot of similarities with cutting boards. It’s free standing without a solid counter top to rest on. Heck, plain old gravity can warp this thing.
I have to go buy some plywood now. I don’t think I need to buy the best stuff. I imagine that an underfloor grade should do fine. Let me know if I need to shell out for the good stuff if you would. I’ll just get 3/4 inch and be done with it. No more glue ups until I mount what I have on the backer.
Thank you Len!
I did a little mockup to show what I plan to do at the corners.
Thanks for looking!
