No I didnt get a massive timber splinter!
I was making a key Holder from a piece of timber I collected from LLWW AKA degoose when I was there last week
Its a bit on the ugly side and of limited use due to its overall shape and condition,but worth saving.
This is the widest side:
And the other side:
A few splits in the end also added to its limited its use:
Anyway not to be discouraged I decided to make a key shaped key holder with it.
After cutting off the side “ears” it fitted into the thicknesser nicely
The after the thicknesser next came the band saw on the rough profile this was the result.
The splits in the end were quite evident.
I guess I could have just filled them all but I decided to table saw the three worst of them out and fit corresponding implants,
I measured the lengths of the splits and set the table saw blade height accordingly, next I used the sled set to the angle and aligned up the split with the blade by eye.
Glued them in
When the glue was dry sanded them down
The final result
The remaining cracks were filled ith my trusty Timbermate filler and I used the Hardwood pot rather than the darker walnut.
