I’ve been busyyyyyyy.
I glued together a bunch of plywood that I previously cut on the panel saw. Man, I love that panel saw! :)
My pile of plywood waiting for me. You’ll have to wait and see what’s going to happen with that.
Ignore the pink spray paint… I was painting the clamps and since the wood is going to get carved into pieces anyway.
I took these- they were turning blanks… I milled them down. We will return to this later.
This is what I started off with today… woohoo! the plywood additions were really handy. I went through almost a pint of CA glue. Yes.. I said a pint.
Thought you may enjoy this.. its what I stare at a lot while cutting. You can see I made it pink.. :P Also you can see some of the magnets I made hiding up on the top of the arm. Hehe.
This is my set up.. thought I’d share. There’s the sheet router. And then the camera crane.. I am shooting timelapse of the ENTIRE THING! The ladder is there because we need to be able to get up to the camera.
I went to cut the pieces in half and my bandsaw was just NOT having this super hard exotic wood. So I made a jig for the mitre saw. I kept all my fingers! :)
This is how I left it tonight. Not done yet! But you will see what happens next…. in the next blog post.
And lastly, this is how I left those little exotic pieces of wood. After I resawed them, I cut some maple to fit the same length and glued them in pairs. They are going to get sawed back into rectangles and after that—you’ll have to see! :)
