04: Cutting Veneer Strips – Part 3

This video demonstrates one method of cutting thin slices of wood into veneer to be used as accent strips between the segments of a stave-type segmented bowl. This method can produce veneer strips that are within a tolerance of a few thousands of an inch in thickness to each other. Be sure to have a sharp saw blade and a zero clearance throat plate installed on the table saw. I’m using a combination Forest blade (3/32″ thick, 40 teeth-10″ diameter) with a stabilizer to reduce vibration for this process. I do not have a thickness or drummer sander to run the pieces through after ripping so this is the final process before gluing the veneer to the staves.
