« Part 2: The cake plate - a DIY design that will last Part 3 of DIY Wood worker wedding series Part 4: DIY Wood worker wedding #4: The cake plate Chapter #3 »

So I’m back in class now and the wedding approach-ith. T-minus 4 months (eeeep!)

So the last time i blogged i have glued up the two 45 degree boards. Thursday the chop saw was in action and i was actually able to get 10 pieces out of the two boards. turns out you only need 8 of these pieces to make a circle (you know, math and all).

So here’s the log as it right now. Didn’t have time to glue because i was working on several other projects, but I feel good about this so far. I can get it done.

i also forgot to post a photo fo the soon to be escort card holders. Here we are:

the idea is to sand all of them and put a small slit down the middle to hold the cards. they are about dry so i am going to get ready to slice these soon.

Hi – am very interested in this 8 piece table base – or central leg? Could you please let me have dimensions of the timber.

Many thanks – Ivor

I think it’s actually 16 pieces if I’m seeing it right. It looks like 2×4s mitered and glued together.
