« Part 1: Lazy Susan..the making of? Part 2 of Circle cutting series Part 3: Jig Pics »

This weekend I have 5 days off from work so will be starting the Lazy Larry. The timber I have chosen for this is Queensland Maple. I am Dressing a couple of 1×8 s this afternoon and will biscuit join them although this is not really necessary for structural integrity. [ Long grain to long grain] but as an aid to aligning the boards thereby reducing the amount of time required for sanding. I am thinking that size does matter so will be making this one about 27 inches diameter. I am including a teaser. One pic of the JIG. Stand by. As you can see well used!

OK, I’ll move on to the next installment. Thanks for the picture. The jig looks interesting. The hold down looks similar to the one that I use for securing my mortiser and bench grinder to the counter when pull them out of storage to use them.

Hi Larry. As for the use of this jig , It looks like it slides in the miter slot on the band saw. Once you have the radius set, you load a board onto the pilot pin and slide the fixture forward to get the pilot on center of the blade and then turn the board to be cut. Do you clamp the fixture to your band saw table some how once it is is centered to the blade?

thanks, Jim
