Yep, using soft pine. Not confident enough yet to spend the $ on hardwood. This could just end up being a prototype if I don’t like how it finishes but it wont be used for chopping.

Updated Plan

Gluing up the legs:

Taper Jig ready (haven’t made it adjustable yet)

Gluing up the top. Need some shorter pipes for my pipe clamps. 5’ pipe clamps on a 16.5” wide top. “ha!” but I needed their strength..

Top ended up with a slight twist so I ended up building a jig to use router to plane it flat.

Makes a big mess! Biggest bit I had was 3/4” so it took a while to do both sides.

Next steps.
1. Mortise and tenon joinery for the aprons.. (will be my first)
2. Notch on legs for lower shelf
3. Make shelf

All feedback appreciated!
