Meet veteran woodturning instructor Jim Rogers, then dive into cutting veneers with Jim's helpful tips. See how to cut a larger ring into smaller rings with a bandsaw or a lathe, then learn how to use spacers in designs, which Jim demonstrates as he cuts the segments for a Greek key.
Use the table saw to create the complex-looking thunderbirds design, whose secret lies in the final set of assembly. Then tackle the more challenging zigzag design, or even diamonds! Jim explains how patience and precision are the key to assembling these segments.
Create diamond designs another way, using sanding to achieve the dimensions you need. Jim shows how to make your cuts on the table saw, getting the precise angles you need. Use a disc sander to remove corners on your diamonds and field pieces with the aid of sanding jigs.
