To make the square dog holes, table saw dado 6/16" deep x 3/4 wide (0.375 x 0.75) into cross sections of some boards before ripping to create a 3/4" square hole or several, fold together for gluing. Once the top is dry I will need to hand plane it, I suppose I should by an A2 blade for the #5, and get it as sharp as possible.
Is this a viable solution for an excellent wood for a top? Or am I lost?
Also need to know is which glue should I use? Dap powdered poly or would TB II / extend work just as well?
