Drivel Starved Nation,
For those of you do not own a JMP (shame on you) it is known for precision and an unbelievable quality of cut. The harder the wood, the smoother the finish.
Last week I received an email from fellow DSN member Nicholas Phillips who graciously shared his amazing work, and equally graciously allowed me to share it with you and all of the DSN. He has had his JMP for only a month, but WOW! I think you will enjoy this photo essay (these are all copyrighted images folks, so please ask for permission if you plan to share outside of this space. Please again.)
Nicholas, as you will soon learn, is an incredible craftsman and shared with me that the accuracy of the JMP has made his life easier, which is cool. Check out how he makes all the geometric patterns in this compilation image;
He notes, “Made this fence for the JMP, including some of INCRA’s hardware for the stop. You can’t see it, but there is 200 grit sandpaper under the board. Clamped down and sidewise. I’ve set the stop to cut 3/16” so I end up with square sticks.”
On behalf of all of the DSN, THANK YOU for sharing your work with us!
Now, I have never done similar work, so listen up! Do NOT ask me technical questions I can’t possibly answer. BUT, if you would like to leave your thoughts to Nicholas as a comment or two, PLEASE DO!
