This is a project I built a while ago and thought I would post as I’m currently building another one for a someone for a christmas gift. It is made from Maple, Walnut and Cherry and the stock was planed to 1” thick before cutting the diamond shapes and glued up into the intermediate shapes. The “sausages” were then chopped to a consistent thickness of about 1 1/2” thick on the tablesaw and then glued together. I have yet to find a really good way to glue these up but have found a few jigs on here that have helped. Once glued up, I flattened with my low angle block and smoothing plane with 25 degree blades. Once flat and mostly smooth, I tackled with 80 through 220 grit sandpaper. Finish was 1 coat of tung oil to bring out the grain then Claphams salad bowl finish for protection. I also attach non-skid feet to the bottom to keep the bottom dry and make it more stable.

Thanks to Degoose for posting instructions on how to do this.
