After probably two months of part time tinkering I’ve finished building the french marquetry saw I’ve been piddling with. It looks nice, it seems to clamp parts properly and it saws. I’m going to stick to simple projects for a little while.
This wasn’t hard, it was just a lot of pieces to make. It needed to be accurate so that it cuts properly (exactly perpendicular to the real vise jaw). I probably will need to adjust the carriage for the saw frame to dial this in — that’s why it has the adjusters built in. But for today there are no more parts to make. And with the Chevy assembled there are no more stacks of parts to be shuffled from one place to another.
I’m going to do a simple practice marquetry project soonish, but I have one or two quick things I want to build first. The first is a tool from Smith’s Key, this should be a lot of fun. Now where did I leave my box of triangular files?
