I missed a few responses on here, sorry about that. Voncarlos - sure I'll absolutely post an update. Actually I finished everything yesterday, but I'm still waiting for the spikes to arrive. I'll post some more pictures once the spikes are installed.
Early - I'd love to do flat packs but these things are labor intensive. If I had an industrial CNC it would be no problem, but I don't. I made a template with my Openbuilds Lead 1515 CNC, but cutting through 1.25" solid ash just isn't an option with it. Therefore, Every single one of these platforms was glued up, the holes in the 4 corners as well as the mortises for the legs were cut on the CNC, but then I used a bandsaw to cut away the exterior waste, and forstner bits to clear away most of the waste for the interior pockets. Then the template was attached and everything was flushed up with a heavy duty flush trim bit. Then everything had to be sanded on the drum sander, rounded over, etc. A lot of work - probably cost prohibitive to offer something for sale. Also the people who make the quattrabase might not be very happy with me as it is very similar in design. I appreciate the compliment though!
