    Woodturningz.com carries at least one version in a few platings. I agree with the earlier post--thought CS USA had them, but i didn't see it either.

    I'm wondering if MDO might be an alternative to MDF? Seems like it might handle the humidity a little better--coupled with a torsion box style support?

    I'd probably use Johnny's approach, but also use the project as the "reason" (excuse) to finally pick up a horizontal router table to cut the profile.
