« Part 6: Coming together Part 7 of If you knew Sushi.... series Part 8: Now you know how! »

The divided bowl won hands down… so now to inlay or recess the bowl into the tray so that is does not move around..

Using the Torque WorkCentre, I set the limit stops on the x and y axies, and routered a square hollow shape in some MDF..bit hard to see here… but trust me…

This is the shape that will be routered onto the Sushi board..

The template is then turned over and setting the router above a pin in the table, the outer shape is etched on the board..See the stainless steel pin??
This etching will allow me to see where the cutter will be following the pin…

Two fences were added to capture the board and help with alignment.. two toggle clamps were added to secure the sushi board to the jig…

What another jig… I just love jigs…

The square was routed in 3 passes… using the in-built depth stop…

We are certainly moving along…

All four boards were routered in a matter of minutes.. all exactly the same…

Again with the mineral spirits, to showcase the colour and grain..

I hope I am not overloading you with this build… but I have so much to accomplish, I must move fast…

Uh, Larry, you got them crooked. :) But they still look good. Yeah, I call my mistakes like that ‘Design Features” also. :D Nice job.
