I made one real size prototype. I´ve chosen invisible biscuits for the connection of the components and glued them together with wooden glue. For the two wooden stripes I used invisible pegs, because the biscuits are too big for this size.

The next step was the colour. I taped a few parts of the object and put on a mixed acrylic colour. The last step was the protection of the wood. I used two layers of bee wax to protect the wood from scratches, spots and water.
