Harry was right again....
Harry and I used to have discussions on making templates for small bowls, dishes, coin trays and we discussed at length what was required to make the 'plugs' that Harry uses to cut then outer walls.
Harry was of the opinion that if one used a certain guide (say for example, 40mm) with a 10mm cutter to make the bowl then you should be able to use a smaller guide with the same cutter, with the same template, you should be able to cut the outer walls.
I was reading Router Projects and Jigs, by Bob and Rick, last night and there it was on page 4-4 and 4-5.
Use a 1 1/2" guide and 1/4" spiral cutter to cut the inside and then use a 7/16" guide with the same cutter to cut the outside walls.
I tried that today, using their 7" x 5" oval template.
The results were as per their expectations.
I was so excited by the result I cut several dishes onto various pieces of timber, then used a Wealden template trim cutter to hog out the centre.
Now I should be over that hurdle and start to make something.
It is 1:00pm here now, so the afternoon will be spent using various combinations of Makita guides with various straight cutters to obtain the same result.
I am trying to find a combination that will make a slightly thicker wall.
Attached are some pictures of this mornings fun..
I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.
