It appears that he laid up the solid tops and bottoms and used an elliptical jig (seen in one of the pictures, leaning on the wall) to cut it. Probably used a router.
The size of the ellipse is large enough that I doubt he’d need wiggle board for the flat piece between the solid tops and bottoms. It would be less of a hassle to us it, though. But, a build up of several 1/8 pieces would probably work.
Looking at his ellipse jig picture, I think he’s making a template for the post holes.
As an aside, I hope he used a non-toxic finish!!!
