When I started to prep the underside of the center diamond (about 6” square), I realized that it had too many loose joints and the ebony trim (about 1/8) around the edges were mostly loose, so I blue- taped the upper side, cleaned off the old glue where possible between loose joints, then used OBG between the loose joints, covered it with wax paper then put it in my “press” (1” MDF)
see picture.
We’ll see tomorrow how this center piece turns out.

And if anyone really wants to know, my “workbench” is the freezer in the garage, covered by a discarded piece of counter top. No drawer space though. :)
