This was very fun to watch. Lots of potential for sure.
its really cool… but it seems like a LOT of work, for what you could have done with a strip of wood as a fascia.
that strip of wood (edge banding) would be plain, not patterned like this.
but YOU COULD stick it in a Glowforge… and have any pattern / design you want.
PS: notice the guy uses nothing but festool… quality stuff there.
Very interesting indeed.
Love this guy!
The way he showed his mistake and had a good laugh about it, was great. I also enjoyed, and can identify with the band-aid on his finger.
I don’t know how dumb this sounds, but my first thought before actually watching the video was that you were gonna stick a thick board of wood in a Glowforge, with a mirror at a 45 degree angle in front of it, in order to engrave on the edge. Maybe a strip of polished copper/brass as the mirror since it’s a good IR reflector.
I think I would cut the panels like 1/2" smaller in both directions, made the strips 1/4" thick, and use the edge pattern as a feature, instead of veneering the faces.
I’m so glad he’s (mostly) using safety devices. I did cringe a bit with the bandsaw; I’d make a sacrificial pusher stick for that last inch. Major props for the mask & apron/gloves. Love that tablesaw!
I love watching things like this, but would never, ever spend that much time edging my plywood.
[Happy cake day @kelley1!]
Yes, there were several times that fingers were way too close to blades for my comfort level!
As you know I am still a beginner in so many areas… So I guess this is the basic technique in how cutting boards are made? So interesting.
