« Part 1: Or, RBS brings the Woodsmith a Stick Part 2 of All Knotted Up series Part 3: Phase Last »

I’m gonna let the inserted captions tell the story. I’m exhausted. A picture speaks a thousand words. Sixty-five photos…well, you do the math.

Almost done.

The next entry will be the finished Thing, posted as a Project.

Enjoy. And, thanks for your help..

It’s 0004, Friday. RBS and company left Tuesday. They still don’t know. I asked her, “If I ask you to take me to get a haircut, will you stay another day?” “No. Can’t,” says she. (She’s been bugging me for years to lose the pony tail. RBS’s Pet Ape couldn’t care less how long my hair is.) So, they’re gone.

Knice Knot!

I’ve experienced the same gapping problem when doing rolling pins. Especially where the insert fits into the bottom of the slot. My remedy is to dry fit the pieces- making sure they are tight- and then use as many clamps as possible.

Thanks.
Lew, that’s what I did. But, I guess, that wafer didn’t heave to. Also, it’s probably the first one, which was when the block was in two pieces. I’m okay with it. See the clamping photo on the first installment of this. I had to clamp it six-ways-from-Sunday.
