« Part 5: Setting up for cross cutting. Part 6 of Open weave Lazy Larry series Part 7: Waiting for the glue to dry... »

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…

That TWO Stop setup sure makes it easier and more accurate doesn’t it?

Really COOL!

Didn’t a speck of sawdust come out of the saw! Awesome!

Love the use of the magnet stops. Brilliant. And it looks like you had some fun with the chalk and eraser video too. Thanks Larry.

Great Video Larry!

Now that you got the class all warmed up (and spoon fed :)) let’s go for the circle weave.

Seriously thank you for all the info you are putting out.

I have learned a lot through these blogs and you are a great teach; I am proud to be your student.

Thank you very much for putting this together Larry. I really do appreciate it. I can see one of these in my (near)future.

I need to make a apology to Larry and all LJ’s for my above comment. It guys like Larry and other here who have made this site what it is today a great forum for sharing and teaching other the craft of woodworking. My comment about spoon feeding technique was in extreme bad taste and for this I sorry if I offend anyone….Wilson aka Blkcherry

blackcherry: I don’t think there is any reason to appologize. There is no harm in your comment; it was fun.

Good one Larry. Great idea to use the Magswitches as depth stops.

I like the classes, it makes it easier to understand how to make such a project.

You use a sawblade with little leeth for the cross-cutting, why not use one with more teeth??

I should have waited on the video of this weave, instead I did on my own, with a fair bit of trial and error. I’m glad to see the video.

Great job! This will help so many people grow as a woodworker. I know Blackcherry and he’s a great guy. There are some things that are hard to figure out for any of us. This site is for all that truly LOVE Woodworking. We all need help once in a while. Well I do LOL …..

Look fwd to the next one.
