Making the top on this piece was a challenge. Angle at back to side is 81.4 degree. I designed this after after many end grain cutting boards. Sort of looks like one if it were square.
I glued the base (pic 2 and 3) and fitted parts of top up with CA glue . Never tried CA before on wood and what a surprise. It was very easy and did not discolor finish.
Top is 17” at back and 9” front, 25” deep.
Base is hard maple, 23 high. Top is hard maple and purple heart.
For my own woodworking growth this project taught me that I like to design and build. 1st piece I made (glider) was from someones plan and I was bored before done. It felt like work rather than fun.
