I made this for my cousin’s husband. Cedar with a spar varnish finish since they planned to put it outside over their entryway.
The inside angles were cut with a tapering jig, the same jig I use for tapered legs, but at a much steeper angle. I cut the first six, glued up three pairs of two boards each (using loose tenons) , then glued the three pairs together. I then cut the seventh a bit wider and shaved it down to a tight fit. After the seven pieces were assembled, I cut the outside angles on the bandsaw.
The faces are beveled to form a ridge along the centerline of each piece. I used a planer sled for the beveling.
