Its been quite a while since my last posts but glad to be back. Here's my question... I'm building a prairie style table with all the usual cues including a seemingly thick top. I had read somewhere that the builders had a way of simulating extra thickness and in addition creating almost a wrap around effect of grain and figure. Whilst realizing the look does not occur naturally it lends itself to other elements that when applied would look odd on end grain.
Has anyone built a top such as this? I think the technique involves miter cutting all the edges, then re mitering the off cuts to whatever dimension and applying back on to the edges.
I may be completely wrong but if anyone out there has done something like this I sure would like to hear your technique before I go ahead and commit saw to board.
