Part 1: The Concept

04-14-2011 09:47 AM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

It is very common for everyone to have wood scraps of different sizes and just turned out to become a boards cutting conventional to endgrain. I noticed that if there are angles involved in joining a wood with parallel grains will be stronger. The warping movement is not visible and the strength of gluing is increased. Unlike the crossboard gluing (or straight gluing…) crack will be present in some cases. Here are series of design that are so simple to make and gluing is also very s...

Part 4: 90 degrees bend by cut and paste

I have changed the concept on the beveled joint for the rainbow strips. I know it will be difficult to cut and paste (glue) in reality if you are dealing with the 10 mm x 8mm strips of wood. Cutting it with the miter saw will require a tremendous control and patience. The wood wasted by kerf of 2.5 mm will add to my worry if ever I make a mistake then I cannot afford to loose more from what is remaining on my wooded strips. Dealing with the risk of doing things is already mindblogging. Bu...
