I was really busy in the shop today, I even found some time after dinner to work on my little Roubo panel.
I failed to grab my camera for the first few steps, but I basically used a straight edge and a knife to cut the lines, then I used my router plane to clean it up.
Test fit the banding… perfect.
Rest of the layout
Now to cut the rest out. It was actually quite unnerving using the router plane, one little slip and something would be wrecked.
Clean the edges of the banding with the sander
Use my small mitre jig for the cuts
Fitted and OBG’ed into place before going into the press
Out of the press and scraped
With the edge trim in place
Now, if you have’ To Make as Perfectly as Possible’, and have gotten this far, you would know that the book talks about a little sizing jig to make lots of the little pieces exactly the same. Since I am only making the one, I did not see the need to make the jig. But.. I like this so much that I might end up making this pattern on drawer fronts or something like that, when and if that happens, I will make the jig.
Now… to find an old corn broom and make the burnishing tool and put some spit polish onto the panel.
