I’ve observed one thing lately about my tasks. I plan them out fairly rigorously, however all the time appear to neglect interested by how I’m going to complete the sides till I really get to that time. There is the facet of breaking/softening the sides from the standpoint of constructing them much less prone to splinter. But I’m extra all in favour of how the specialists take into consideration the aesthetic features of ending these edges. Of course, one can blindly use a roundover bit and simply end them that approach, however a current expertise opened my eyes to different prospects. I’d put a small chamfer on a bit utilizing a block airplane. I stepped again to have a look to see if it was uniform and the chamfer caught the sunshine and lit up in a approach that I had not noticed earlier than.
I simply obtained a free delta unisaw with a sliding attachment!
Two query on this desk noticed:
1: Ben, this doesn’t have a riving/splitter. I imagine you added in to your unisaw which one and do you prefer it?
2: I need to rebuild my store round this noticed. Right now my desk merely butts to my work bench which can be my out feed desk. I want to connect the bench/outfeed desk to the noticed however the ground will not be stage. (garages store). Would you construct to stage? ie, stage the noticed and construct every thing to that airplane or construct to sq. with the ground.
I’m considering via a technique of chopping an anticlastic curve out of strong wooden for use for a chair again. I can see the way to create it as a bent lamination however am struggling to assume it via out of strong lumber. Getting the curve in a single route ought to be easy sufficient however I can’t wrap my thoughts round chopping a second curve in it. Any concepts from the good minds of FW?
So far finest I can give you is attempting a router jig that conforms to the unique curve and guides a router right into a path of the opposite curve.
Quick definition, if wanted.
Anticlastic curve – Anticlastic surfaces are these wherein the centres of curvature are positioned on opposing sides of the floor. This is usually-described as a saddle form. A hyperbolic paraboloid is an anticlastic floor. Think of a Pringle chip.
For a chair again, the one curve would hug your again and one other would curve away towards the again to simply accept the curvature of the backbone.
