Squaring stock is possible without these, but these should help a lot. So far I've made a 16" set and also a 12" set. I think I want to make a 26" set to finish it off, but I don't have a log that long to split down. Filmed a video making these. Click here for the video. As also any tips are always welcome.

When you get to be an old fart like me, you'll want to paint one of them white to better see the contrast. Looks good with pretty straight grain.

I was also going to suggest making one white for contrast. Must be something about old eyes I guess. Maybe just put a strip of Melamine edge banding on one of them.

Would you put a strip across the entire top or just a small section? I haven't seen any with an entire op difference, that is why i have just the dowel inlay.IMG_20170106_221416_516.jpg

I'd probably put it across the entire top to keep the edge even and continuous. Haven't ever tried that - it's just something that popped into my head when I was looking at your pictures. Nice sticks, BTW.

Thanks. My next goal is to make a box with some of the same logs. Maybe a serving tray as well.
