Hope you like it.
I modified the blocks to be all triangles. I used Maple, Walnut, Cherry and Oak.
Actually made a sled for my table saw to cut these with instead of using the miter saw.
I would cut for a half hour and then dry fit for a half hour.
Three hours later I had enough blocks.
Next was the glue up, and with Debbie’s help other than the first two rows it went well.
Tried to be pay attention to the grain pattern.
Ran it through the drum sander and filled in a few small voids.
Cut it out to a rectangle approx. 12” X 16”
Glued oak ends on and clamped for an hour.
Cut it to size … again through the table saw.
Glued on the other two ends and clamped it tight over night.
Made some 17 inch long legs and kreg screwed it together.
A final sanding before sending it to the finish shop.
Special Thanks to Martyn for the vision.
