I really like it, but my first thought was, how long would this expensive blade last, before it needed to be sharpened, or replaced?

His cuts can all be done with a router. The "one pass on a table saw" is nice, but it doesn't mean the difference between making, or not making a drawer with these joints.

Still, he is FAR better than me at working with wood. I am just a clumsy old fart with some shop tools. I have always said I am better at making redwood decks and patio covers than I am at making pianos. I just don't have that obsession for perfection that some guys have. "Close enough" is okay with me. I really need to take some community college woodworking class to learn the discipline that makes the difference.

Me too!

My favourite expression used to be "It ain't a piano!" (In answer to somebody's being anal about something that just didn't matter.)

Pretty cool and easily achievable idea. Don't know that I'd go through the effort, as I am going to be making many drawers, and I'm not sure you can even patent a grind pattern (can you?). I mean, if I go to Joe's grind shop down the street and ask him to grind me this custom shape drawn on a napkin, he's not going to run it across the patent database, is he? Or will the patent police take apart your customer's drawers and check the pattern?

That being said (and possibly completely irrelevant)...

... if you make this stuff for a living it can mean the difference between having a drawer in under 5 minutes and having one in over 10 minutes.

Instead of seeing things and asking "why", envision things and ask "why not"

I'm amazed by this . Then again I don't really know how to make drawers so this looks like a nice outcome . Never thought about the sharpening issue though . Was just impressed someone could actually come up with this idea

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

It appears that his blade would be a fantastic time saver. However, the initial set-up has the potential of being "fussy" and probably time-consuming. Then, if you are off one little bit on your cuts, you would have an out-of-square box/drawer.

I can only imagine what the cost of this blade would be.

I do love seeing folks think out of the box.

Thanks for posting this.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

I use the wrap idea but instead of the blade I use a 45deg "V" bit on a router table. Then glue and wrap the same way.
Works for me.
