no previous part Part 1 of Weave pattern LL Dip and Chip series Part 2: Cutting and Gluing up the weave. »

I spent a very happy day in my workshop today….mostly I jointed, thicknessed and ripped lots of timber… Purple Heart, Silver Ash, Silky Oak…[aka Lacewood] and Tasmanian Blackwood… I used an Incra TSLS 32 to rip fine strips for accents.. More woven pattern projects in the wind. It is such a pleasure to work in the new clean workshop… I moved the 3 metre machine around to make more room to play on the 2 metre machine… and moved the mitre saw… now I have lots of room to make all manner of new projects…

Had most of it ripped when I notice that the table saw was making a funny noise and the blade was lifting up while I was ripping… Checked the belt and OH OH… not good.. if fact bloody dangerous…Need a new belt… Like right now… where to get a belt for a table saw…

Jumped into the car and went searching for a new belt… first stop… Repco… automotive spare parts dealer… Had one in stock… and I got a discount for being a member of RACQ..

Back to the shed… finished all the ripping.. and then spent a few hours glueing up all the accents to the weave..

.
As to sized.. the lacewood is 1 and 9/16 inches..and the accents are 1/8 inch thick.. the end depth will be 1 and 1/4 inch… there are 10 lengths of 20 inches which will be cut to size…maintaining grain matching across the weave….
Three new projects half done… will finish the cutting on the Mitre Express from Incra…

Then more glue up… here is a slideshow of the weave accent glue ups.

.. then a vid of the Torque Workcentre doing its thing to make a Chip and Dip Lazy Larry.... this one will be a first ... weave will be Silky Oak... all the rest will be the same... Silver Ash background and SA/PH accents... Sorry no Tasmanian Blackwood in this project...but you can see in the last pic with the Red Jet clamps... another glue up for another project has some TB ...yeah...

Hold on to your hats .....I can't wait to see how this all works out...
