Take 7 Meters of KD hardwood timber 50mm x 30mm (I got the lovely man from Pontings hardware to strip down 2, 3.5 x 100 x 30 larger pieces) then grab your drop saw and start cutting. Tip...sand the larger planks first, this makes it easier later when you are sanding the little blocks. I flipped the belt sander onto its back and let it rip. Saved a heap of hand sanding!
Took about 2 hours, will last for YEARS!
