« Part 3: Thin strip ripping... Part 4 of Open weave Lazy Larry series Part 5: Setting up for cross cutting. »

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 glued and taped, it is added to the clamps..

This is the slab of Huon Pine ready for ripping … for the background of the Open Weave LL..

Everything out of the clamps and the Huon Pine dressed to size…

After a quick clean up of the glue joints…. It will be time for the most awaited part... the cutting of the various pieces to form the pattern…

Once you posted this, it occurred to me the need to get very accurate cuts so this will all go together as it should. Keep it up and THANK YOU for sharing with all of us.

Yes Rance… accuracy is the key… all the weave strips must be the same width…or there will be h*ll to pay…

While this is not a CLASS per se… I am treating it as an exercise in teaching… hope you all don’t mind…

Sorry, but I’m a baaaaaad student. I looked back at your Chip & Dip Tray and am curious.
1) What glue do you use to provide the longer open time, and
2) do you roll it on both surfaces or just one?

Thanks for putting up with my questions and thanks for the reply earlier. :)

Nice amount of detail to go along with the photos. Enough detail, instructions, and explanation to comprehend, yet straightforward and to the point. Well done.
