Well I have been wanting to make one of these for a while. I didn’t want to go off anyone else’ plan so i just went into the shop and started cutting away. I just threw one board out there and totally screwed up, it was a mess. I did find out that you only angle the bottom cut, not the hole. I also tried to use a scrap piece of oak plywood, also in the trash now. The board just wasn’t looking good enough for me, it keep having tear out. I finally got it though (third times a charm?). I used a piece of pine I had laying around. It is 9 inches long by 3 3/4” wide. I stained it with minwax golden oak stain and then threw on some poly. HERE I COME CHRISTMAS GIFTS!!!!!!
