THIS IS OUT OF ORDER SORRY
Should have been part 4 not 5
Got the Maple dressed yesterday and started the lamination process.
I decided a thin accent of purpleheart was the go.. I love the purpleheart .. very few people in Oz using the purpleheart…so used the Incra fence to slice 1/16 inch strips to slip inbetween the maple [ I think the ever so small stripe will highlight the shimmer of the maple.]
So first I glued the PH to the Maple with Titebond II and used bluetape to secure while it dried… the purpleheart is purple on the first board but brown on the cut pieces..[purpleheart will oxidise back to purple with exposure to light]
Then glued up and clamped the pieces and waiting for the glue to dry [ decided not to use bicuits as the pieces fitted well and no slip]
Notice the alternating clamps . so the force is exerted uniformly across the boards and minimum cupping occurs.
Next step drill a partial hole [but not all the way through] on the under side of the blank in the centre [for the bolt on the Jig.] and then after sanding the blank, a quick spin and voile a circle is born. Coming Soon to a bandsaw near you!
