Band Saw Sled - 60 Degrees

761 days ago by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

The 60 degree band saw sled as seen in the woodworking video is made from scrap. It took 15 minutes to build from scrap material. As you can see, it is used when cutting small wood pieces for wood inlay banding & parquetry. What kind of band saw blade is being used? ...Wood Slicer – 1/2”, skip tooth, 3-4 TPI.

You asked and i’m going to try to explain how I make my inlay strips.After many trial and error attempts I found it easier if you make a glue up jig shown here.I used prefinished plywood and made a 1” caul to aid in even clamp pressure when glueing. Next step would be to choose the types of woods to be used . I typically use a maple/ walnut mix for my diamond center as to get a good contrast of colors.
