Wow!!! Just wow! I’m so impressed. I wish I had such good skills with wood and proper machinery.

Except for the ones with paper honeycomb structures inside.

But then again "wood is made of paper" as they say on YouTube on the Hydraulic Press Channel, so wood = paper and it's all the same. wink

Ah, yes. And I prefer the "classic" design. And it might not be too hard to make that round corner with a large hole saw. (Not that I'm DIY...)
