Part 1: Initial thoughts.

1001 days ago by degoose | 5 comments »

Have been thinking for some time to try my hand at a sushi board.. was in town today and picked up some small dishes… suitable for dipping sauce… so I have laminated a strip of Purple Heart between some boards of Queensland Maple…[ not a true maple… it is a flindersia not an acer] Any way waiting for the glue to dry again… No pics yet.. so stay tuned..

Part 2: A blank and two bowls...

1000 days ago by degoose | 10 comments »

Here is the blank of maple and purple heart… remember this is Queensland Maple and not the maple you get maple syrup from… I have two dipping bowls and I am not sure which one will be right for the Sushi Board… Number one is square sided and deeper… Number two is divided into two sections and has rounded corners but is shallow.. I intend to curve the ends and using dowels attach the curved handles … maybe purple heart… What do you think?

Part 3: Two in a set.

I thought that a maching set of two sushi boards would be nice. After selecting a nice board of Queensland Maple… I cut 2 blanks…and then using the curve cutting jig on the bandsaw …. I cut an asymmetrical curve across each board. 2 stipes of Purple Heart and 1 stripe of Camphor Laurel were captured and glued between the two halves. A few hours in clamps. And then the whole lot were sanded and the ends cut.. More on how the ends were cut and how the handles we...

Part 4: Two handles, two curves..

986 days ago by degoose | 4 comments »

You will have seen on the sushi boards, that I have cut two curves on the handles.. If I were just making one board, the cuts could be made freehand on the bandsaw…but… Since this is now part of the range… I need to be able to produce these cuts on a regular and repeatable basis… so once more a jig is needed.. To start, glue the mainboard to the handle/ends… this need not be a great bond… it is to temporarily hold the pieces together while they are cu...

Nearly there. Just a few shot to show the progress.. and to give you all an idea how they might look… Still of two minds with the bowls… Leaning towards the rounded on at an angle in line with the striping..

Part 7: Setting the bowl into the board..

986 days ago by degoose | 13 comments »

The divided bowl won hands down… so now to inlay or recess the bowl into the tray so that is does not move around.. Using the Torque WorkCentre, I set the limit stops on the x and y axies, and routered a square hollow shape in some MDF..bit hard to see here… but trust me… This is the shape that will be routered onto the Sushi board.. The template is then turned over and setting the router above a pin in the table, the outer shape is etched on the board..See the stai...
