Hey everyone, I made this awhile back, before I had many of the tools and the knowledge that I have now. It was done on a cheap un-tuned table saw, and I didn’t have a jointer or plane at the time to square the edges. With a lot of hand sanding, I was able to get it to look somewhat decent. It is made of walnut and white oak and finished with tung oil.
