« Part 3: Jig Pics Part 4 of Circle cutting series Part 5: Laminating the blank »

Hello boys and girls welcome!

Straight to it. The jig and how to use it.

After drilling the partial hole place hole on bolt and adjust the sliding dovetail dohicky until the blank touches the Blade and lock it off. Turn on dust collection and the bandsaw and spin the blank through the blade
Notice the purpleheart has oxidised back to violet.

and then on to the disc sander jig to remove the bandsaw marks { same principal as the BS jig]

How good does the final Lazy Larry Top look with some oil finish.

Next the base and how to attach the bearing, stay tuned

Same bat time same bat channel.

Regards Larry

Larry, the top look great. The purpleheart accents contrast nicely with the maple. This is going to be a nice piece when it is completed. Looking forward to the next installment.

Your BS and Circle Cutting Jig works very well – it cuts pretty clean.
Waiting to see the top assembled.
Good Luck.

Hi Larry,

I just found this series of yours, but the pics from the previous installments of the series showing the jig, etc… are no longer available for viewing. Any chance you can repost them or email them over to me at: myanononline@gmail.com

Much appreciated and thanks for sharing!

I haven’t posted a link to photobucket. Is there a problem with the pics here?
As for the edge thought I would Just ease It.. don’t want to take too much away from the timber..

No Dusty56 no additional pics… regards comment to Matthew, I inadvertently deleted all the pics on photobucket and had to upload
As you may or may not know to insert pic here you must have a picture hosting site such as flickr or photobucket and then use a direct link to that site.
As to the new post [part6] will be this week when I have more time

cheers Larry

Good Larry. The sanding jig is a lot like my bandsaw circle cutting jig. I will have to have some support though on the outboard side. That’s easy enough. Thanks again.
