From the last post you would have seen the teaser…Here it is all glued up and marked for cutting into an oval… I also used a little turpentine to enhance the colour and grain…I think the choice of Queensland Red Cedar [toona australis] certainly brings out the angularity of the design…
In my last post In the round the second pic shows a single stripe .. double chevron [second gen] ..This blog will show in part how this was done… To start make two grooves on both faces of a board… in this case virgin hoop pine…[virgin meaning naturally grown… not plantation timber] Inlay two different timbers… in this case purple heart And narra [new guinea rosewood]This is instead of one strip of timber between two others…Shown end on… I...
I love the way the antique pine shines… Again not finished …. New Guinea Rosewood with Purple Heart and Antique Hoop Pine Chevrons… and the one on the left is Silky Oak aka LaceWood with single stripes of Purple Heart…You may also notice that I have altered the width of cuts… something a little different…
This post documents the step by step in creating a 2nd generation board.. Striped board… cut at 50 degrees. Flip every second piece left to right… After glueing up the chevron pattern… cut through each down facing [right to left] stripe… at the centre at 25 degrees… Now flip every other piece end for end and glue up again… Now cut to shape… In this case the one on the right…
Out of the clamps… and cut at 25 degrees… [through the centre of each chevron going down from left to right…] each other piece rotated end for end… For those who can not picture this… there will be a video forthcoming.. by the end of the week I hope… And now back in clamps for the day… out tomorrow and I will see if this goes to the third gen… Stay tuned…By the way… timbers used Queensland Maple and Purple Heart…
Today, as I make my way out to the workshop, ideas are flying around… having looked at the information on lamination design that Scott sent….wow… so many new thoughts are spinning through my head… I had an inkling as to how it was done… but now the technical part is explained… So, to the shed…..rip, glue, crosscut, glue, crosscut at a different angle and glue again… then sand, sand, and sand some more… These three boards were made us...
In the last blog I made a template for copying Cheese Boards.In this vid we will see how to use the template with the Torque Workcentre in overhead pin routing mode.. I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did making it. .Just a small selection of cheese boards..Stay tuned …..If you thought the first year was good… you ain’t seen nuttin’ yet.
The Torque Workcentre can also be used as an over head pin router.To accomplish this you will need a template… basically a board with a groove cut in the shape of the item you want to copy.. so that the groove will move over a pin in the table and the router above will cut the shape below.. Very simple but care must be taken…Here is how to make a template…Next up will be using the template to make a cheese board... in Camphor Laurel of course..I will also be making a templat...
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. Mikethetermite asked for some info a few days ago and I decided to bit the bullet and take the time to do it as a blog. Here goes- On my band saw table I have a sacrificial board- 3/4” plywood squared and framed to the table. The back frame piece unscrews and swings up to put the board on and off the ta...
