5 ¼ series...my mind was on the micro-bevel today based off of an email conversation with a smart lady. I decided to follow the same concept as I did with the frog from my previous post and mitre a 35 degree jig with a 4x4. #woodworking #handtools #DIY
5 ¼ series...I mentioned earlier that we needed to address the frog as the contact points were a little rough. I'm using 220 grit and lightly dressing it left to right to flatten it out...no need to be rough with it; slow and steady wins the race. #woodworking #handtools #tools
Make them as simple or fancy as you like. Frame-and-panel construction can be used from everything from cabinet doors to furniture pieces and built-ins. Get started using the basic construction processes detailed below.
5 ¼ series...to clean up the bottom contact points, I chopped a 45 degree angle on a 4x4 to use as a guide/jig to give me a larger surface to work with. I then lined the frog up to the edge of the jig and started working my sanding block left to right. #woodworking #handtools #tools #DIY
5 ¼ series…now that the mouth is nice and square, we need to address the edges. With a fine mill file, we are going to lightly chamfer the edges - same motion as before, engage on the push stroke and release on the down. #woodworking #handtools #DIY
