Sometimes projects like this are quick and dirty, and there is nothing wrong with that. I enjoy making beautiful tools, why make ugly ones? But sometimes, there is no reason to spend a ton of time on such a utilitarian object, especially one that is going to be used to build more beautiful things. Sometimes building things in cheap, readily available material is the best way to go, especially if you aren't confident in what you need or what you are doing. These are some things I ask myself when I build: Does it serve its purpose? Does it do it well? Did I learn anything? That last one is important. Probably the most important.
If it were me, I would round the edges so you don't catch a burr or splinter, and start using it to build beautiful things.
What type of woodworking are you going to be doing? Small scale stuff I assume?
I made some things!
