First I cut all my wood to 20 inches in length on the Minor Saw. I had 2 pieces cut to 20 inches in length of each type of wood. I used Maple, Cherry, Walnut, and Oak. After this I cut each piece to the width I had set for it using a table saw. Then I glued all the pieces together in the pattern i chose. Then I cut the extra material off of each end. I also used a Radio Arm Saw to make the board even and dispose of gaps. I then sanded until each surface was smooth. Used a round over bit in the router for the sides. Then smoothed the board one more time sanding and moved to putting mineral oil on for 8 coats.
