Control Panel in a 3/4" Maple Butcher Block?
« on: March 03, 2019, 02:07:31 pm »
I know most people here use plywood or MDF, but I have a special project that won't be using vinyl. Does anyone have any experience working with something like a Butcher Block or solid maple? Any special issues I should keep an eye out for (such as special tools or bits), or will it work as shown in online guides meant for MDF?

I know my finishing, just curious about the cutting/joining aspects. I made a desk out of Maple Butcher Block, and now I want my pedestal to match.

I'm a big fan of using a Kreg jig + wood glue to join things at 90 degrees.  Is this the info that you are looking for?
