Ti Tree Lazy Larry #2: Cutting the Ti Tree Round...

962 days ago by degoose | 11 comments »

Once the glue was dry… I left the blank in clamps for 24 hours… to make sure…it was off to the bandsaw and onto the circle cutting jig.. Just a matter of rotating the blank on the pivot point…. And a few minutes later it is in the round… Pop it through the drum sander, sand the edges using the circle sanding jig on the disc sander A little mineral oil to bring out the colour and you can see how fantastic the grain really is..

Ti Tree Lazy Larry #1: Milling and glueing.

964 days ago by degoose | 4 comments »

Milled up some nice boards of Ti Tree [melaleuca bracteata.]... that I bought at the Brisbane Timber and Working With Wood show in May… got them from Roderick Carins. Nice timber.. very dense and very heavy… but by the time it was milled it was ok… Here are the boards in clamps, glueing up to make a 600 mm blank… this will be cut into a circle later for a really spectacular Lazy Larry.. Follow along if you want.

Open weave Lazy Larry #8: The glue up

1074 days ago by degoose | 11 comments »

Got out nice and early this morning… and here is the glue up video you have all been waiting for … The whole video is actually only 9 minutes long… intro and ending included… the glue up took around 8 minutes and a further couple to fit and adjust the clamps.. So a realistic total of under 10 minutes… not too shabby…

Open weave Lazy Larry #6: A crosscutting video...

No explanation required… just watch.. Here is the dry fit after all the pieces have been cut… I did not show the cutting of the background Huon Pine peices .. I figure you know how this was done…. all cut at the first stop.. and again keeping them in order for grain flow…

Open weave Lazy Larry #5: Setting up for cross cutting.

1087 days ago by degoose | 7 comments »

To start we need to ensure the blade of the table saw is at 90 degrees.. for this I use a Wixey digital angle finder.. Fortunately I have an Incra Mitre Express and Mitre 1000 se…. turns a normal table saw into a sliding saw… and oh so accurate … You will notice the Magswitch magnets being used as stops…this will become clearer when you watch the video…. just lay the background strip along the blade of the table saw and place the magnet to act as a stopR...

Open weave Lazy Larry #4: The glue up

1088 days ago by degoose | 15 comments »

Here you will see the steps in the glue up of the weave strips… The strips are ready for assembly.. After applying glue to the various surfaces, I assemble the 5 pieces in order and secure with blue painters tape.. this is easy to remove later… While just using tape can be enough, I like to clamp between two cauls to ensure that the width of the piece remains constant along the entire length.. and it aids by applying even pressure on the strips being glued..As each set is...

Open weave Lazy Larry #3: Thin strip ripping...

1089 days ago by degoose | 10 comments »

Well, all the timber is now dressed and ready to have some strips cut… I use the Incra TSLS 32 fence system and this makes thin strip ripping a breeze.. Note the feather board to the left of the table… For the first cut I set the blade to shave the rough edge… then set the hairline cursor to a starting position… I chose to use 4 on the auxiliary scale purely as a reference point..The cursor is then move 1/4 inch on the scale… This will give a strip 1/...
