The Torque Workcentre makes this step rather easy…Hope you enjoy.
The divided bowl won hands down… so now to inlay or recess the bowl into the tray so that is does not move around.. Using the Torque WorkCentre, I set the limit stops on the x and y axies, and routered a square hollow shape in some MDF..bit hard to see here… but trust me… This is the shape that will be routered onto the Sushi board.. The template is then turned over and setting the router above a pin in the table, the outer shape is etched on the board..See the stai...
I have been busy as you can see… the sushi board series is coming along swimmingly… I took a few pics to show you some of the steps… Here are the various steps.. 1. Glue two boards of Qld. Maple with a strip of Purple Heart in the middle… 2.Glue the ends temporarily. 3. Cut handles from ends and shape the main board. more previously…...
You will have seen on the sushi boards, that I have cut two curves on the handles.. If I were just making one board, the cuts could be made freehand on the bandsaw…but… Since this is now part of the range… I need to be able to produce these cuts on a regular and repeatable basis… so once more a jig is needed.. To start, glue the mainboard to the handle/ends… this need not be a great bond… it is to temporarily hold the pieces together while they are cu...
I thought that a maching set of two sushi boards would be nice. After selecting a nice board of Queensland Maple… I cut 2 blanks…and then using the curve cutting jig on the bandsaw …. I cut an asymmetrical curve across each board. 2 stipes of Purple Heart and 1 stripe of Camphor Laurel were captured and glued between the two halves. A few hours in clamps. And then the whole lot were sanded and the ends cut.. More on how the ends were cut and how the handles we...
Here is the blank of maple and purple heart… remember this is Queensland Maple and not the maple you get maple syrup from… I have two dipping bowls and I am not sure which one will be right for the Sushi Board… Number one is square sided and deeper… Number two is divided into two sections and has rounded corners but is shallow.. I intend to curve the ends and using dowels attach the curved handles … maybe purple heart… What do you think?
Have been thinking for some time to try my hand at a sushi board.. was in town today and picked up some small dishes… suitable for dipping sauce… so I have laminated a strip of Purple Heart between some boards of Queensland Maple…[ not a true maple… it is a flindersia not an acer] Any way waiting for the glue to dry again… No pics yet.. so stay tuned..
