My son has been doing karate for a little over a year and he is starting to accumulate belts. So he needed a place to display them. We found a design on google and I tweaked it a little bit. I carved the logo for his dojo with my shapeoko 2.
Time lapse of bending top piece:
All joints are lap joints and I wanted them all to be perfect. I looked at different kerf makers to use but in the end I made the simplest jig ever. My “kerfmaker” is a scrap piece of wood with a screw in it. You adjust the screw to the kerf of the blade, and it takes some test cuts to get it dialed in. Adjusting the screw out makes a tighter joint, and adjusting the screw in makes a looser joint. Here are a few really short video that show it in action.
