  • Tutorial - Block Ripping Jig Without a Table Saw

    Hello All,
    When I began to carve, I had several books and looked at several videos describing the need to rip blocks into triangles and how to make the jig on a table saw. I had just purchased a bandsaw to for cutouts but didn't have a table saw and didn't want to return to the finance committee so soon. I was a able to make one on my band saw. Some of you offered suggestions here. Thank you.
    Someone in my carving club asked me to make one for them so I thought I might document how I did it with pictures for future generations.

    That should do the trick PH, Sure makes it easy to cut the blocks.
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

        That's a great tutorial ! ......... hopefully one of the moderators will pin your post, so it will be readily available to future new members.
        If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

          I moved the post to the Tutorials forum - I think it'll be easier for people to find, as it can get lost in General Carving (I did leave a permanent re-direct there). Excellent tutorial! I had my son do one for my on his table saw, but this one I could have done quicker on my bandsaw.
