Earlier today, I uploaded a brand-new video to YouTube, which happens to be my first for about a month. I’ll probably go in to that one a little deeper in a separate blog post next week but it bears some relevance to this post where I’m going to be looking at mitres and tackling the seemingly-simple question of how to fit a length stop for repeat or batch cutting of identical lengths.
My next video on YouTube should document the making of a small picture frame made from a minute quantity of English walnut. Today, I’m going to share with you a bit about making the mitres on each of the four corners, as I took an opportunity to try and saw blade I’d not tested before and I’d like to share some of my thoughts on that.
I also decided to make a mitre-cutting jig for my mitre saw and there will be a shorter video showing how I made that, to be uploaded within days of the picture frame project going live.
Part 2 is my Picket Planters video series is now online. It starts off with more machining and ends with all the mortises having been cut on my benchtop, cast-iron hollow chisel mortiser.
In Part 3, I’ll begin by round-topping all the pickets and posts on the bandsaw and, after that, I’ll looking at cutting the tenons on the ends of each rail.
Thanks for viewing.
