I just had another idea - use the table saw to add a groove along the edge for the twine to run in on the outside of the mat. It might give it a cleaner look. Also, a nylon colored cord (black or brown) might hold up better.
This is great looking and involves some basic woodworking skills. I think there are some techniques that have been mentioned that been mentioned that might reduce the labor involved. One idea I had was to make your back rail for the drill press taller and the flat edge of the block would be a way to keep it aligned properly. That way, you could route the longer strips before cutting and drilling.At any rate, great project and am definitely going to try this one - perhaps with palette wood - just to get the "reclaimed" or "up-cycled" vibe going.

Thanks - my version only weighs a few pounds and can easily slide under a bed when collapsed. Easy to travel too if you need a quick stool or low stand.
