« Part 1: Sneak Peak Part 2 of What happens when you cut with a drunken saw. series no next part

For a long time I wanted to make a woven board.. even before LJs,. then after joining LJs I saw one and make one.
Still looking for something different to impress my new found friends ,, had looked at curved designs and then I thought a curved woven board
I was just going to make it like the Drunken chess board.,. no rhyme or reason,. then along comes Patron aka David with his double curve.. so I just made the jig.. for the double curve spiral LL and …...
It hits me ….that is can use this jig to cut ‘worms’ and incorporate them in the curved woven board.
.

.

So far so good I think.. but wait…. now I have to make the background, also different.
WATCH this space..

so you made the curved cuts by hand, just following the trace. i think you might get more accurate results (not that I am saying your hand cuts are not accurate!) by double taping all the rows (with the proper spacing) to a bit of plywood and making full spiral cuts. i hope this is clear…

Yes clear enough but the waste is what I am trying to avoid,.,. looking to make the cuts on the jig but still working on how,.
As always I will persevere until I have my answers.
Thanks for the thoughts though,
\Larry

hmmmmm… maybe i was not clear. suppose you double tape the lower layer in the second picture to plywood the way it is in the picture and use it on the jig to make the cuts. the only thing that needs (maybe) to be changed is the position of the hold downs. the plywood edge will act as the support for the second cut

” crosscuts ” have to be on the same jig 90’ to first cut and placed allong jig at proper place in cut line in curve .
but i am concerned about the addition of the strips of ” hilites ” ,
will they change the radius slightly ?
i know you will work this all out , and i too await the finished product .
it’s possible that the pivot points might need to have an adjustment slightly for the saw kerf ?
