When Andy posted his last week, decided I have to try one. I need small items for shows. Grabbed some wood from the scrap pile. Proved why that wood was in the scrap pile. That many dado cuts on a sub par piece of wood caused smaller pieces of scrap than I originally had. Back with better pieces. It is blue pine. I used red cedar for splines. I normally use water based poly, but I had some oil based poly from some other project. I don’t care for it. I’ll used water based from now on. It’s 10×10”

Thanks for looking

That turned out very well Monte. I hope you sprayed it. Other methods looked tough to me.

Nice one there Monte. I like that you included the knots. Knots are the new Black! :)
