After reading many replies here and elsewhere the solution I came up with was different then what many suggested and wasted some wood but was very easy to do. I started with a piece of left over 3/4" laminated counter-top 22" x 22". I cut the dado in the middle of the piece using the rip fence as a guide, then rotated the board 90 degrees and cut the second dado. Then I used my track-saw to cut between the dadoes at 45 degrees. This is shown in the attached file.
I will post pictures of the completed steady rest next week once I finish my caster upgrade and remount the rest.
