For this decorative board effect, I needed a stepping and yet repeatable stop on the tablesaw fence.
So I came up with this idea.
Dollars’ worth of Dimes,
Make a cut remove a dime, make a cut remove a dime and so on, till all your dimes are gone, then there are 8 full width pieces in the center of this board then it steps back down, add a dime make a cut and so on;
If you figured it out correctly your making your last cut when you have your dollar back on the fence!
(Depending on how long the initial glue-up is)
It’s Cheap, Effective, & Exacting.
I could have been even cheaper and done this with Ten Cents but I thought all those nice colored boards deserved a, little bit of Silver, plus I liked the thickness of a dime.
Here are lots more Photos of the build if you’re interested.
Dollars’ worth of Dimes
It measures 15-1/2” x 14” x 3/4”
Finished with Cutting Board conditioner & Beeswax.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
