Default Beverly Hillbillet part 2

Ok with the piece cut out I screw the pattern to my bench and spray contact cement on both pieces


Next I insert a flush trimming laminate bit in the router and trim the piece flush with the pattern


Then I change the bit to a roundover bit and give the edge a nice treatment.

Last I seperate the piece from the pattern and clean the glue off the back.

All it needs is a little sanding to take some of the burrs off then it's done.If you want it to look sand cast just blast it with glass beads or even coarse sand.

you could have just posted the second part pictures in a replie to your first thread .....but if you want to keep these two together since you already got both of them started you could copy the address of this one and paste it into a replie on the first one, then yo could just click the link to find the second part


looks cool

looks like a freud patern bit in a nice makita plunge router?
and i love your finger joint jig...never thought of using it to make machined cross hatch cuts in aluminum tho,, good thinking
NICE tech for sure

one word of caution tho for those of us who work a lil wood that have never used WWing machines to work aluminum. use GOOD carbide tipped cutters and blades, dont skimp and use the el-cheapo ones as has been mentioned, and DONT USE your dust collector if you have a central DC unit in your shop like i do... the stuff dont make any more static electricity than does wood, less actualy, but it does play hell with your dust collector bags...

dont ask how i know this i just do.

also expect to be pelted with little bits of hotter than hell aluminum and wear your safety glasses...better yet a face shield!

BTTT for some good fun tech

i can say for sure they are, as i have worked aluminum with woodworking tools plenty of times. standard woodworking carbide tipped bits and blades, just not the cheap ones. the bargain bits tend to fall apart working wood and you dont want that.
i have had a carbide come flying off a cheap menards (big box store kinda like home depot or lowes here in the midwest) blade and its spooky. little zinging pops as the tips go flying past you at over the speed of sound

I use Freud router bits...they cost a bit more than the offshore ones but they stay sharp longer and don't fly apart like the cheap ones. Any good tool house or woodworking supply should carry them.

yea, freud makes a killer bit, and less expensive than CMT. i use CMT for cabinet and furniture stuff, and freud for utility.

the table saw blades i use are from a place called Ridge Carbide... spendy as hell but worth every penny. hilti thin kerf table saw blades for utility shit

Routers also work to relieve flatheads.
