Well, all the timber is now dressed and ready to have some strips cut…
I use the Incra TSLS 32 fence system and this makes thin strip ripping a breeze..
Note the feather board to the left of the table…
For the first cut I set the blade to shave the rough edge… then set the hairline cursor to a starting position… I chose to use 4 on the auxiliary scale..The cursor is then move 1/4 inch on the scale…
This will give a strip 1/8 inch thick… taking in the width of the kerf of the blade..
All the strips are cut in the same way.. move the cursor 1/4 inch each time…In all there are 16 strips of Silver Ash
and 16 of Purple Heart.
This shows the dry fit of the first 4 lengths..
On to the glue up…
Editors note… if you do not have the Incra system … there are many different thin strip ripping jigs posted at lumberjocks.com for you to make your own..
