Nice job,,I was lost until you said (incra ) and you use it for the indexing, I'm thinking.

Levon... I won't steal Jim's thunder here, but I will tell ya, that you dont have to have an Incra to make those. These are a great exercise in precise measuring/setup and bit progression....

Jim.... good work is hard to find, good companies to work for are even harder to find. *S*
Its nice now that you can finally start cranking things out isn't it... Here's one for you and the boy.... checkerboard/trivets....maple/walnut sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet...

hi John,

i think we are all getting cabin fever.

i always felt for people having to battle cold weather to have to live and work in, but this year our normally warm area is frigid!

i have learned to dress for it, but i will never learn to like it.

i guess ive just been spoiled for years.

You got it, Mike. I set the fence and make 1 cut across, then one with, then move the fence. The plans recommend doing that. Actually I should probably re-read them as they may want me to make all of the cross-grain cuts with a particular bit before any along-grain cuts with that bit.

There really isn't any need to hog out the wood since all you really do is set the 1/2" bit for (they say 1/16", I went a skosh over, about 3/32") and make all the cuts with that bit. Then, the 3/8" bit only goes another 1/16" deeper (I went a bit over again), right where you cut previously and repeat with the 1/4" and 1/8" bits. This way each cut is only very shallow. The hogging appearance comes because the last cut is the depth of adding up all of the cut depths, even though the cut with each bit was shallow.

I'm not explaining this very well (I've never been very good with words) but it will be obvious when I post the photo shoot.

i hope to see how you made them. i dont have an incra, so i may not be able to do them.

thanks
Levon,

Although I used my Incra, I think there's gotta be a way to make them with spacer blocks. Once I get the next ones posted, I'll ask Mr. Jigs for his professional opinion! If anyone can do it, he can!

Whoops! Obviously I should have read the whole thread before making the last post. Bob, it seems to me you should be able to make them with spacer blocks, even the next ones I'm doing that use stop blocks too, but that's beyond me. Maybe you would please help there, once I post the pics?

Hi Jim

Duck soup with the ski jig,,just cut some spacers on the table saw,stick them to the table with some DST,let the skis run on the side of them..

stick down some stop blocks for the ski run in to ..

Make one pass and then move it (spacer) over to the other side,when done with all turn board 90 deg. and start over.

No need for a plunge router for this one..
