Walnut & Maple.
40X25X4 cm
TBIII glue, Finished with 3 coats of Rustin’s Danish oil.

I really like this simple design, so i am working now on a batch of three, two in end grain form, and one in long grain form.

It is a bit hard to see that in pictures, but the grain of the wood is countinueus throughout the board.

I prefer the bevel edges (made on the table saw) much more than routed rounded edges, for several reasons:
1. As a thumb rule, whenever I have the option to choose between the table saw and the router – ill go with the table saw. (Important: I am talking about sliding table saw, Format or equivilant. I never understood the sense in using a cabinet saw)
2. The bevel serves as a handle. it is much easier to implement and to finish.
3. It gives me the opportunity to design and to make decisions on the spot, while processing, and to fix if needed. For a few minutes, I feel like a real artist…
4. The corner, where the bevels meet, is always unique and appealing.
5. The shiny highlight at the corner is really neat. usually its not seen when the edge is rounded.

Thanks for watching.

Very nice and clean design but hard to get to align just perfect and you did it judging by the pictures .
I agree with your comment on using the table saw and its advantages .

Thank you guys for your encouraging words.
for proper lineup and glue up, I asked one of the guys here, which is a true master on this field, britboxmaker, the exact same question. I am attaching his answer below: If you slide two pieces of glued wood past one another (uses short back and forth strokes) there comes a point when enough glue is expelled from the joint for it to lock (ie not move easily). Then you clamp it.
I learnt this trick from another LJ, ‘Patron’.
