I made this with the kerfmaker I posted earlier.
Made with scraps of white oak a friend had given me.
It took me a little bit to figure out how to use the kerfmaker for something useful and be able to locate the kerfs where I wanted them. But I finally figured it out using my Incra miter gauge and the saw fence.
I milled up the slats to the size that I wanted and then taped them all together in one bundle, I laid out the locations for the kerfs and cut the 1/2 lap joints all at the same time. The thing went together perfectly on the first try.
I used the router table with an 1/8” round over bit to knock off the corners and a little light sanding.
Finished with shellac.
The kerfmaker is an amazing tool. I got perfect joints the first try and every try.
Build or buy one, you can’t believe how bad you need one of these until you have used one.
