Very GOOD, Bob!

I liked the way you built-up a large piece & sliced it away to multiply it…
... the real Beauty of doing this type of work… Make your own veneer… Make it go further… Save $$$.

COOL as usual!

Thank you!

Joe…

Addition is good. Multiplication is better. It is essentially the same amount of work with a greater return.

(If you read the last link, there is a clue to answer your question from last week.)

As always…thanks for watching!

Another informative video. thanks. What do you do about open time of the glue and clamping when gluing up all those little pieces?

TS…Excellent question! Glad you asked it.

This particular day was very hot & dry. It was about 107 & about 15% humidity in the desert. White glue because of its extended “open time” is my preference for this type of woodworking project. However, with high heat & low humidity one still needs to working quickly.

You noticed in the video that no clamps of any kind where used during the glue up. Each surface of the individual parquetry segments is brushed with white glue. The mating surfaces are joined by means of a “rub joint.”

My focus in this project was on proper alignment & grain direction. This can be a challenge under these drying conditions. It was fun though.

As woodworkers we tend to think glue & clamp. Not in this instance though. Here is the reason why.

The parquetry board is to be cut into 3/32” veneer sheets. The veneer sheets will then be glued to a substrate of some woodworking project. As long as the parquetry board is aligned correctly and is able to make it through the resaw stage, it is a success. Then it is simply a matter of gluing the veneer sheet to the substrate.

Note: The parquetry board itself was of adequate strength to serve as a cutting board. As we all know, a waterproof glue is a better choice in that case.

Hello bob

A fantastic video

I like this idea

I want to try to make some projects like this one….....

In the future ..

To cut all the pieces I don’t know what is the better tool : bandsaw? Miter saw? Table saw?

Thanks for sharing

DJ…

Always great to see you!

My preference is to use the band saw when working with small wooden pieces. The small wooden pieces are very easy to control and to cut on the band saw when a sled is used. It is quite safe too. One of these band saw sleds only takes 10 – 15 minutes to make. Very simple!

Anytime!
