I am going to be making a few hundred wooden fish. Imagine a fish with the meat gone so it’s just the bone. Now imagine it’s made of wood.
The wooden fish are cut with 45 degree cuts for ever cut. Right now I am using thin planks 6”x 3/4” x3/8”.
I tried to use a 6”x 3/4” x 4’ board on a table saw, then cut off 3/8” pieces with a band saw but the bandsaw took the bones off.
The bones of the fish are a 1/4” thick and the spacing is whatever the thickness of the sawblade is. Right now it’s a couple millimeters.
My question is:
What’s the quickest way to make these? Right now they take 2 minutes per fish. I may need around 800 of these. I don’t want to spend 26 hours on this. The project may grow as well.
I was thinking of making a saw with multiple blades of increasing sizes so that with the shaft is at a 45 degree angle, the blades all line up. Think of a Christmas tree on a 45 degree angle. But I am not sure I can find blades that are only a few millimeters larger than the last.
