I had a few free moments in the garage this weekend, so I made my first real project. (Real actually means finished) I saw this idea on Woodworkers’ Journal’s newsletter I believe. There is a short video on how he makes this. I actually impressed myself on how this project came out. The woods are Cherry & accented with Maple spacers, and I finished it with 2 coats Minwax Wipe-on Polyurethane Satin. I rubbed it down with 0000 Steel Wool in between coats. The worst part was trying to cut the 1/4” spacers square on the table saw as my band saw doesn’t have a fence, nor is the blade wide enough to make a straight cut. I know it wasn’t the best way to do it, but it got the job done. The joints came out surprisingly good especially considering I do not have a jointer or planer.
