    Project!

    Making a round Western Red Cedar table top.

    Pic 1 :

    A jig made for the Bandsaw that allows you to cut perfect circles to a diameter of 48"
    Has a dovetailed sliding scale that incorporates a precision pin to locate in a hole on underside of Table blank, to "spin" the piece into the blade.
    Design will allow you to "spiral in" to a hard stop(small C Clamp) before you start the actual radial cut.

    Pic 2 :
    Close up of Jig and Pin set at 14 3/16 radius.

    Pic 3:
    What the cutting looks like as you spin the piece.
    You have to focus on a point in space, otherwise, you will get dizzy and fall down while cutting the top.!!
    If you is alreadyDizzy, like me,something you MUST keep in mind..

    Pic 4:
    Table top cut showing the fall off pieces.

    Pic 5:

    The most fun of the project. A 100 year old Baily #7 jointer plane. I used this to Flatten the back side of table top to get a registration datum to plane the top flat..
    No motor noise here!! Just a very quiet Hiss of a deadsharp blade iron removing 2 1/2 inch wide shavings at a time.
    The smell is wonderful,, and before you know it,you are ankle deep in shavings.

    Anyways,, just thought some of you "Others" that like to fiddle in the garage would enjoy..

    Ok, cool. How wide a blade can you use in the band saw?
    hope you go to a Card Scraper and not sandpaper to finish that top.
    Assume you have scrapers but if not Clifton makes a 3 piece set and get a burnishing tool to keep an edge on em'

    Not taking on the project but if I ever have a question, now I know who to contact. from some pics of your work you are quite the skilled craftsman. I would even call you, "The Man."

    Dad loved woodworking. In the years before he was killed he went from furniture to handmade Banjo's. We used to sit Saturday afternoons and drink a beer together watching the New Yankee Workshop. Good old Norm...

    Congratulations, you invented the wheel.


    (you did a great job sharpening and tuning the plane).

    while he gives an air of goofyness (still true) he is quite an artist and has talent I think most of us wish we had. I know what it's for as well. Good boy Gooser. Donut for you on the next training day.

    Extremely talented and smart for sure. (and to boot he's not an overbloated, talk-talk-talkity to hear himself rattle on kind of guy...) Wish you all really knew the man behind the facade...

    Not sure what a facade is as long as he keeps wearing it....

    What is facade?

    is it like farmaid, or koolaid?
