Board is 10 1/2×10 1/2
mahogany squares are 1 1/2 inches
longer pieces are made up of 1 1/4×4 1/2 inch oak with 1/8 inch wenge glued to them.
I used my drum sander and dial calipers to make very precise parts.
oak and wenge parts were glued together with titebond polyurethane glue and after these parts dried the entire assembly was glued together with “system’s three” epoxy darkened with golden oak anilyne dye powder.
After the expoxy set up the entire assembly was run through multiple passes in my 16-32 Ryobi drum sander at 80 grit. Later sanded with my random orbital to 180 grit , rounding over the edges with the sander.
Finished with mineral oil.
