This is a very simple one. I was hired by our office manager to slap together a lazy susan in maple, to match the cabinets at work in the kitchen. It’s going to hold coffee cans, filters, spoons, and other coffee-time trappings. It can’t get much simpler.
I biscuit joined 5 17” lengths of jointed 1×4 maple from the same 8’ plank, making a roughly 17” square, cut out a 16”+ circle, sanded it up and routed the edge to clean it up to a more perfect 16”, ripped a 4.5’ strip of 3/16” edge banding from another maple plank, tapered the end, and now a strap clamp is keeping the edge band tight overnight while the Titebond III dries.
I’m not quite set up for circles work, so making the circle jig, testing out various edge banding materials, and fighting the banding and strap clamp with everything wet with glue ended up taking me all day today. Sigh…
Can’t wait to unclamp it tomorrow and get it done. A simple, quick project, and I’ll get paid. That never happens!
