I built these to replace a set that was built from ripped 2×4’s that had started to warp and were snapped by a low belt that tried to jump sideways, they support a piece of plastic conduit and are used in training to develop leg muscles by jumping. It was a partial gift to my Grand Master and partial payment for one of my black belt tests. It got a bit tricky to figure out how to execute and replicate the two vertical pieces… so as is most often the answer I built a jig out of 1/2” ply and used a pattern bit after rough cutting the shapes on the BS. I used oak ply this time and made them another 18” taller so they should have a very long life in the Do-jang. They are secured to the base with biscuits and #14 2” screws, the base conceals two pieces of 3/4 MDF which give excellent weight for stabillity… as for the edge grain on the saw tooth, I just couldn’t figure a way to cover it, so I left it exposed
