Project Information

I built this thicknesser last night based on a tool that was used on The Woodwright's Shop. The tool rides over string inlay that has been rough cut to width, and the scraper blade removes material on the inlay until the inlay is the perfect thickness. I have not had a chance to use it much yet, but it worked pretty well on a test piece of inlay.

I'll have to see this program on line to see how he used this.

This is just what I've been looking for. Is the scraper square edged or with a hook? 90 degrees in the block or at an angle?

vipond33 - the scraper edge is squared but I did burnish it like a scraper before installing it in the jig. The blade is 90 degrees in the block, but I think it might be a good idea to angle it 5 degrees or so in order to create string inlay that is narrower on one edge than the other…I've found that to be easier to install in the inlay grooves.

Schwieb - the episode is available online and is called "Holly Wood Spectaculars". It is from the 2008-2009 season.
