    Have done lots on four sided material but not seen it done on six sided blanks. They are not through cuts? Will be interesting to see the results.

        Re: Celtic Knot Salt and Pepper Set

        the're pretty easy, just the same as a 4 loop design. the critical part is starting with an accurately cut hexagon
        but that some pretty basic table saw stuff
        have to remember though that the blank before cutting the hexagon must be wider than thick. a two inch thick pepper mill blank has to start with 2 by 2 1/2 (approx)chunk of wood

        a true hexagon has a point to point dimension 15.5% bigger than face to face

        i cut the 30 degree bevels on one edge then move the fence appropiately to cut the other two bevels

        the kerf cuts are done on my bandsaw and yes i stop the cut about an 1/8 back so that the main piece stays in aliugnment

        the veneer pieces are the same thickness as the bandsaw kerf

        these pics are from doing some pen blanks, but the mill is the same

        note that when cutting the kerf(2nd pic), the face of the blank MUST be against the fence so its "up on a point"

            Very nice. The thin inserts are more attractive than the 1/8"

              i agree, i did a couple of vases first a few weeks ago and a pen, cutting the kerfs on the tablesaw(3/32 blade), much too big
              although i did do one vase with laminated inserts, 3 pieces of veneer(maple/walnut/maple), total thickness 3/32. it was ok but the knot was still pretty thick looking

              there is video on utube of a guy doing his kerfs on a scrollsaw then inserting pieces of aluminum pop can!! a couple of layers of aluminum iirc. i may try that next, with the aluminum or with brass shim stock. i dont know how straight the old beaver scrollie will cut even with a sled!!

                I have used colored construction paper (bristol board) on either side of the main strip. Very thin accent lines.
