  • Rifle Pattern

    Has anyone done one of Robert Hlavacek gun patterns? I am in the middle of doing his 1866 Carbine pattern am and wondering about cutting the backer? It is 44 inch's long and then for an even better challenge some inside cuts?
    Well, when there is a will there is a way. Just wondering what the easiest is.

    I've done inside cuts like that same as normal except you sometimes have to get creative and cut a bit one way, get it turned around, cut some more and so on. Eventually, you should be able to get it all cut out.
    Another option is spiral blades if you have them.

      You can also use something like a Roto-Zip or a Trim Router for the inside cuts.
      Depending upon size, even a zig-saw.

        Thanks for the suggestions. I have been scrolling for over 20 years now and have never tried a spiral blade. That is probably my best option, as I am horrible with a jig-saw, even worse with a roto-zip.

          You can also turn your blade around. Takes a bit of getting used too.

            He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

            Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

            I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

            You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
