This month I turned the big 90 years so I celebrated by making a end table. I made my own jigs and most of the lumber for the pieces came through my small band mill. The grey wood is Myrtle from logs I hauled from Oregon, The white wood is Montana Box Elder. The Black walnut is from Wisconsin. Red Mahogany is from Panama. The tan wood is NY Red Oak. I have shown a picture of the Jig in case anyone would like to try their hand at this type of craft. It has adjustments for other angles but I found once set accurately it is best to leave it alone and have several jigs for other angles. The angle for the 22 inch end table is 150 degrees. The stock is one inch by 3/8 inch by any length. I use other jigs to make cutting boards, cheese boards, and sandwich boards and Lazy Susan’s. These I will post in a few days. Oh! yes, The material is cut on a 14 band saw with a 3/8 14 tooth blade. I hope this is enough information that some one can get started in their own projects. If not ask and I will try to answer any questions.
