Made a crosscut sled for my bandsaw. Used it once, then thought about a modification to allow me to cut the two angles I need on my rosette. Pretty self explanatory. Additional fence pivots and is held by the slotted arm. … Continue reading →
I had glued up a log of walnut and locust strips for my rosette. I cut 30 and approx. 33 3/4 degree slices by hand with a quick homemade miter box. Then glued the pieces together into 30 degree segments. Came out OK, but I think I can do better.
Now that I have a small bandsaw, I made a table and crosscut sled. Figured I’d try slicing my rosette log with it to see how it would look.
With some fiddling I think I could make these work, but I have about 10” of the log left to play with. I think I only used about 2” so far. Now I’ll set up for the cuts on the bandsaw and see if I can get a bit better result.
Once the herringbone part is done, I plan on bordering it with walnut and locust purflings. I have those rough cut, but need to figure out how to properly thickness them to about .040”-.060” without a drum sander. Just got some W1 tool steel which I may try making blades with for a scraping fixture.

Got distracted from my guitar a bit. Got the heel block glued on the neck but dreaded cutting it out with a coping saw. I just can’t seem to keep a coping saw on track and I didn’t want to … Continue reading →
