    Default Thank goodness for YouTube

    As a prominent instructor on YouTube I take time every so often to see what others are doing, Tips de Jour with Robbie O'briem etc and I got to thinking after a client expressed it about making my abalam rosettes bigger. So after viewing and reviewing Chris Paulick's video on his cutter I spent 4 hours making one today and I am a happy man. I'll post the results later this week but there are some highly refined wrinkles to what you see on his video - something which I am very conscious of.

    ie: he made it look easy and when I came to it, it wasn't that straightforward.... now where have I heard that before?

    It looks a fine idea, but I have a feeling it might just work better on a fret/scroll saw, especially the cross cutting.
    And if I was to do one, I might make the width adjustable too.

    Chris is a really great jig maker and very generous man to make all his jigs available online. I use the same jig for cutting shell blanks to rosettes and purfling.

    ??? of course it is! That is the whole design rationale. You watching the right video?

    Chris Paulick - don't know if he is professional or amateur but he has a series of really informative videos on aspects of guitar building. You may not agree with some of what he does but there are loads of good ideas there... here's his channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/chrispau...eo-mustangbase and the video I was refering to. Try to ignore the irritating music track:

    Yep...fully adjustable for width of the piece and from the brief look at the bottom of the the part of the jig that holds the shell it is also adjustable for the diameter of the finished piece. It looked like he had several indexing holes to account for this. I've watched others of his videos. He is definately a thinker.
