Sounds like You snuck in there & got a set too?!

I know you're going to LIKE these jigs... I KNOW I will...

I guess I could go ahead and place MY order, being prepared for a little wait!

It will probably take that long for me to CLEAN my SHOP so I can USE'em!

I hope people post their projects, etc. that they used them on...

I'm really looking forward to this... Big Time...

OK, here is the second glue-up of the 7-day clock project. Used up the rest of the cedar 2X4 stud. This time I cut the step rabbet on the TS first instead of later with the router. Will have to report that it is a better way to go. But and there is always a BUT, it took 7 trips on each one for a total of 28 trips to the other TS to recut the mitered end after making the first miter cut. Also had to figure an extra 1" of waste per cut or a total of 7" + 1" for saw kerf or total of 8" mote per board.

Herb! Thank you for your report!

Looks like you have two rabbets along the backside... WOW! ... Yep, I can see how it's more work & waste to Route rabbets first than later...

Is it worth saving the Cleanup required when cutting the rabbets After the glueup?

I wonder if there is a SAFE way to route the rabbets After the main cuts and Before Glueup? If so, it might work out better Timewise and waste??

Your clock frame is looking GREAT! Perfect joints! The Jig worked really GOOD!

=================

I have been thinking of just a simple Rectangular frame... using the Segment jig for FOUR segments... TWO Shorter in length and two Longer in length... They should fit together just fine! Yes?

If this works, then it should also work with EVEN Segmented Polygons, like EIGHT segments: Two Medium lengths (sides of rectangle), Two Long lengths (top & bottom), and FOUR very short lengths to be used in each corner... to make cooler corners. That should also work, YES?

Now, we can start to get it MORE complicated by making, for example, a 20 segment polygon with some pieces longer than others to create more of an Eclipse than a Circular result?? I think it's possible; the total sum of degrees would not change... the lengths would have to be equally balanced.

Lots of other ways of thinking about the use of these jigs.

Wheels could be made using say a 20 segment polygon, dry fit with tape, Determine center point, use Compass to draw a circle just inside the outer edge to make a Circle... make a router jig for the segment Curve, route all segment curves, THEN glue them up to have ROUND wheel! Yes?

Starts to really rely on ones IMAGINATION... doesn't it?


Have Fun,
Joe

It's interesting if you're building a window frame, a table, or odd angles on a modern Coffee table.

I am happy to see you guys picking up on this. It is a cool tool and can create some awesome patterns in wood. The only limit is your imagination.

@Joe Lyddon Is it worth saving the Cleanup required when cutting the rabbets After the glueup?

Joe, Cutting the rabbet on the TS is worth the extra fuss and waste. I did the first one with a handheld router and of course you get rounded corners to the rabbet. Also it is harder to do , a jig has to be made to hold them and jack them up off the table so the bearing clears.
I didn't want to set it up on the router table because I couldn't find my 1/2-1/4" reducer for the bit.
The double rabbet is one for the acyrlic lense and the one for the face plate with the movement attached.
The matching of the grain + the rabbet is the reason for the extra work and waste.
But in the end I think it will be worth it.

OH YES! Segmented turnings... a HUGE help!

I thought I mentioned that already... maybe on another forum...

Congratulations... Hope to see what you with them too...

Mine were recently shipped too...

I received the jig for multiple sides, but not the simpler on for setting the cutting angle. They're getting a little overdue according to this string. Today perhaps?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
