Built from Iroko which was very easy to work with. A Rockler Lock Miter router bit was used to join the corners, and blind dowel holes were used to connect the top and bottom. The pictures include a template used to align the dowel holes. Extra attention was paid to insure the template had the correct orientation, tops to bottoms, and sides 1 to 4 matching… whew!

The lock miter was a first for me. The setup instructions were a bit confusing at first, but you can still learn almost anything on the internet. It took a few setup tests on scrap – planed to the same thickness as the finish material – but it turned out well with crisp corners. The truncated pyramid was done on the table saw using a tall fence board. Finished up with OSMO which brought the grain out nicely.

Thanks for the comments. And yes Jim, Port Orchard is our county seat, about a 30 minute drive.
