From Scraps to Strips.
What are the available woods that are needed? They are unlimited in terms of target dimension which is a rhombus of 30×60 deg with width of 1 inch. Aside from this I need to check on the blend of colors that are classified according to dark darker darkest..
So I will use the narra stocks that I have plenty. The scrap 2×6 Narra parquet with varying thickness. These are the previous flooring used in our office.
Therefore, two pieces cut into strips 1 inch and about 1/2 inch.
Turning to Right Thickness
The next step… is to make the thickness evenly. So I made a thicknesser jig for my jackplane.
Making use of Shooting Board
The next step is using my shooting board set to cut evenly of 1 inch.
For the smaller piece, use a spacer to meet the desired width… of course it is wider as it will glued together later
Finally…. The stocks I needed…
So there is the process of making a usable pieces… Coming next is cutting a rhombus from this stocks.
Have a nice reading. BTW, I’m happy to be back and start sharing my ideas now. Also please note that I am not allowed to do powertools as of this date. But if you use handsaw and plane… secret is you must know how to sharpen the saw and plane blades.
