« Part 4: The glue up Part 5 of Open weave Lazy Larry series Part 6: A crosscutting video... »

To start we need to ensure the blade of the table saw is at 90 degrees.. for this I use a Wixey digital angle finder..

Fortunately I have an Incra Mitre Express and Mitre 1000 se…. turns a normal table saw into a sliding saw… and oh so accurate …

You will notice the Magswitch magnets being used as stops…this will become clearer when you watch the video…. just lay the background strip along the blade of the table saw and place the magnet to act as a stop… this will give a square piece for the back ground and also the smaller piece of the weave…

After a few test cuts, I managed to get the cross cut piece the same length as the width of the blank…

The second stop magnet is set by using 2 background strips and 1 weave strip…

Got lucky with this one… first attempt… same length as the width of the three blanks…

I have just finished the video and when it is edited I will post… should not be too long…

Nice to see the gizmos at work. The Incra items are something I have considered, but so far my super sled fills the bill. But the Incra stuff is very handy. Gotta go make some popcorn and watch the video….........(-:

Larry, I have the Magswitch featherboard and a couple of the single mags for hold downs. It never ceases to amaze how effective they are.

Great job, Making me kinda jealous on the whole sliding table saw jig. Might have to look into this, being I didn’t spend enough at the Woodworking Show in vegas. LOL
