« Part 8: The glue up Part 9 of Open weave Lazy Larry series no next part

Well the glue has had time to cure… now to take the weave out of the clamps.

A quick trip through the drum sander…

Reasonable flat… now it is off to the bandsaw… onto a circle cutting jig..

A quick pivot..

Now we have cut all the corners off… there will be less to sand so back in the Drum Sander

To show the colour and grain a little mineral spirits..

Tomorrow… a base and bearing… final sand and a few coats of poly.. Might use the Earlex 5000 and a water base finish..

Have you ever tried shading the ends to make it look like they are actually weaving under, or is that just more distracting from the overall piece? Looks great though. Wish I had a drum sander. :(
