The two walnut boards for the top have very wavy grain and quite a few knots, making it unstable (in terms of wood movement). To counteract this, I”m adding a fairly large support structure underneath.
I use a french curve to find a pleasing shape and cut out the first one that will then be used as a template for the rest of the pieces. I use my Rikon 18″ Bandsaw with a 1/4″ blade to quickly cut out the curve.
Then I clean up those marks at the spindle sander.
Only 17 more to go!
