We then glue the thing up, prepare everything, lay one of your strips and coat with glue, I have some titebond extend for any complicated glue-ups so this is what I've used here. Lay half of you pyramids down making sure they are touching, I give them a little rub in just to set up some suction, once half of your pyramids are down then individually glue each of the rest and lay them on top gently, do not push them in,

when done, tape up, gently.

and clamp the life out of them starting from the centre out.

Then when dry, plane one side,

And cut into strips, I got eighteen out of that piece and bearing in mind we still have the pyramids with Walnut on the outer side for which we will make some more lines from some veneer, Maple on the inside this time, so I will get another eighteen strips from those each 300mm long.

Lovely jubbly,,,,,,how much would that lot cost? and all made from stuff which could easily have gone on the fire, plus you could use timber from the project you are working on which would match perfectly.
The rope inlay was made just the same way except the first strips were cut on the 45 deg jig but not flipped over so they were all angle the same way.

Andy,

many thanks - that is such a great idea. Thanks for the WIP. =D> =D>

You may be interested in a similar laminating technique that I use at:

Check out the third photo - a simple bandsaw jig that may be of interest.

I look forward to your next WIP

Dave
Brilliant Dave, just don't know where you get the ideas from. In picture three where you are cutting the segments, if you turned those, end to end, onto the sides just cut with the band-saw you would have your rope inlay.

Andy,

yes, I see what you mean - very clever. Sometimes I can't see the wood for the trees.

Keep up the good work
