Ron – sad to admit it but I glued 1 side to the back on the first pass, and then the other side to the back on the second pass. The was the third pass and there was no choice – it fit into the other 3 parts all at once. Next time I guess I’ll try Gorilla glue and a bigger stack of clamps.

Jim – OK, so maybe I shouldn’t bother with the wood filler. I think I could fill the cracks with splinters well enough. Still, I don’t really like the sharp corners either, and if I’m going to fuss with the corners I’d like to do something about that too. What about a small chamfer on the corners and then iron-on edge banding? I suppose that might look strange on the corners that run cross grain on both surfaces.
