I actually finished this in 2011 but I’ve been real busy with other projects.

I have a couple of others that I’ll post as well. This one is made primarily of cherry, maple, and walnut. The wood is approximately a half inch thick on a plywood substrate about 1/4 inch thick. I attached it to the floor with construction adhesive and four screws thru the substrate. Finished with BLO and polyurethane.

Beautiful piece. I’d really like to know how you got the angles on the under half. Hope you’ll share.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Its simple, really. If I remember correctly, I added an angle block onto my crosscut sled. I could be wrong but I think it was 22 1/2 degrees. They did take a little finessing with my Stanley no. 4 hand plane, some headaches, starting over, and throwing a few against the garage door…lol.
