More details on the method under consideration

Another coffee table ()

This is a cross post from the Oz forum. The drawings are courtesy of a formite there.

This is what I also thought to end up with ...

Joinery could be as simple as dominos.

I can shape this with a table saw and hand planes (perhaps - see below).

The question is whether one uses a single section used across the width. That is easier to shape with hand planes as one is planing long grain. However this may create more of a sectional look.

The other way is to join together sections, and to have the grain running into the the top. Looks better, but more work to shape, as planing across the grain. But perhaps not such a big deal to do.

Worth thinking about.

Regards from Perth
