Dry fit…

 

Hi folks!

Continuing along with the Group Project, in this episode I’m going to show you how to ‘stretch’ wood. Not literally, but stretching it in a way to make a narrow board work for a wider application. I’ve mentioned this is the past few episodes, and excited to share this technique with you.

Here’s a few images to show the general process-

To begin, I dimension the stock square and rip a strip off of the front.

Step one.

Step one.

 

Next, the larger back part of the off-cut is re-sawn and the two halves are flattened and squared.

Step two.

Step two.

 

Finally, the parts are jointed, book matched and glued to a secondary wood, in this case, poplar.

Step three.

Step three.

 

You’ll see the entire process in this, our 150th !!?? episode-; )

enjoy~
