I’ve had several LJ’s request pics of the jig I made for the wavy Larry board. I’ve snapped a few pics and sent PM’s with bits and pieces of info individually.

I typically work from the darkest colors to the lightest, creating layers of color. This piece is turned from fiddle back maple. My apologies for not taking a photograph prior to applying any dyes. The first coat is black. I apply the dye liberally inside and out. I then wipe the outside with a...

06-19-2009 02:14 AM by Ampeater | 8 comments »

Here is how to make the jig. Picture 1. 1. Cut a 3/4” thick piece of MDF ...
