« Part 12: Bandsaw Finger JIG or Push Point Part 13 of Rocking Chair: An Online Course series Part 14: Twin-Blade Joinery »

I finally got this pattern JIG for my bandsaw made and setup correctly. I have run several test pieces so I am satisfied that I can cut the rocking chair’s back slats correctly. I am comfortable that I can cut all of the back slats so the curves will be done correctly and smoothly; so they all will be the same.

Part of that setup was changing my 1/2 inch bandsaw blade to my 1/4 inch blade. The curves are not that difficult but in order to follow the pattern in a smooth motion it required that I have a 1/4 inch blade in my bandsaw.

I also had to find a way to clamp the finger of the jig so it would be held tightly flush to the bandsaw’s table top.

This is a sample of a back slat I cut during my testing phase of this pattern jig.
