If you look at my projects, you’ll see a preponderance of qtr-sawn oak. The issue is that you can only get 2 sides of a piece of the project to be qtr-sawn.
So how about all four sides being qtr-sawn?
I’ve made the legs for the lectern project I’m currently engaged in as such; I mitered 4 pieces of qtr-sawn and glued them together, giving me a 4 sided qtr sawn piece. Looks great. You must, however, be dead-on regarding the 45-degree angles, or you end up with a nightmare; angles MUST be cut at 45.0° and not 45.1°
So now I’m thinking that I might extend this concept onto a future project – such as a mantel clock. It would certainly make for more work, but I can’t help thinking how nice it would turn out.
