Step 6: D-Pad

Picture of D-Pad
For the D-pad, I first thicknessed a bit of oak and made it into a little panel. It then got shaped to fit into the rebate.

It needed a 6mm maple edging though. So I made a template off it using a flush bit in my router, then I rebated off the template with a 6mm rebating bit.

I thicknessed some maple to 6mm and worked it to surround the cross.

Then glued...clamped....sanded flush

Annoyingly, the oak I used for the cross looked completely different from the rest of the tabletop. I recommend just making a 6mm channel and filling it with maple instead.
