So for those who don’t know – I’m new-ish to WWing and new to LJs.
I’m just about done setting up my very small space shop for the 3rd time but now that this 3rd was the actually getting stuff done in there re-arrangement, I’m fairly confident that I won’t have to do anything but tweak and make it cool. lol.
That’s the back story; this is the problem
I am a miniaturist wanting to make true joinery furniture in 12th scale. Since I’m eager to move forward I want to abandon the kits that I had previously practiced on and start converting my plans to miniature ones and start chopping that wood. This is the item that is the last item holding me up. I have a chunk of wood that I was advised is a very good one for scale building. It is a 2” thick X 12” X 12” slab of buttery, lovely Pear. BUT I am not sure what will be the best way to start to hog this into scale lumber that I can use without wrecking or wasting it…
I have the following tools and need to know what I need to move forward in the best way:
Miniature table saw capable blade height of 15/16” cuts
That’s mostly it so considering all this do you see a way of using my current machinery to effectively get my stock to useable dimensions?
OR if it’s impossible what is the best choice of equipment that I have to get in order to move forward.
