    Jean-Marc, Take the basic idea that I have shared with you in this video.
    Build a sled for the table saw with the required angles. This will allow
    you to make a larger compass rose. Thanks for watching.

  2. Jean-Marc Selvon says:

    Thank you very much for this video, awesome. I wish learning how to make a
    compass rose of 24 inches on a table saw. Does anyone got an idea about
    that. Wish to put a compass rose in my shop floor.

  6. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Den0Q, Now that the compass rose veneers are made, they have to be inlaid
    into some woodworking project. That part still needs to be figured out. Any
    suggestions? Thanks for watching and contributing!

  7. Laney Shaughnessy says:

    Excellent. Tutorial. As always Bob. One I will definitely be trying. For

  8. Mark Feeley says:

    Another nice video, thank you kindly for sharing.

    Love the video and I want to make my own. I checked your channel but
    couldn’t find the video showing how to make the sled. Could you possibly
    repose it? Thanks

  10. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Azfeeley, Good to see you again! You’re very welcome. Thanks for watching
    these woodworking videos.

  11. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Look at 00:45. Watch this cut again. Make sure that cut #2 of the segment
    is right alongside the point of cut #1. This requires a few test cuts to
    make sure the stop block is positioned in the right place. (Angle of stop
    block)…unimportant really. The stop block just controls the length of the
    segment being cut. 1.) make sure the fence angle is 22-1/2 degrees
    (dead-on)to the sled’s saw kerf. 2.) Make sure all segments are of uniform
    lengths. (stop block.) Stay w/ it. Let me know.

    Thanks for the info great video.

  13. Steve Carmichael says:

    Those look really cool! I will have to make some. I’ve seen people use
    tinted epoxy to fill an inlay design in wood. Maybe route a circle bigger
    than the rose and glue the rose in the middle of the circle, then fill in
    the extra space with tinted epoxy and sand flush. hmmm

  14. n8guy says:

    Wow. Those are awesome! Any reason you didn’t just use wider pieces,
    thereby saving all the extra cutting and glue-up time? Is there a benefit
    to doing it this way?

  15. woodstoney says:

    Very nicely done and informative video as always!! I appreciate your work
    and thanks for sharing!!

  16. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Thanks MrLeonard. Thanks again for watching.

  17. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    It is fun stuff that can be made with wood scraps. Glad you enjoy these
    woodworking videos. Please come back for the next one.

  19. Eric Francis says:

    Nice work…very inspiring. I need to make me some inlays now.

  20. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Laney, Thanks for the feedback! You will enjoy this project. It is a great
    way to maximize your efforts of a great design. (Make one block & receive
    many veneers.) Let me know how it goes.

  22. Randy wood says:

    Good Work have to try to make that Thank you! Will let you know

  23. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Heitor, Keep learning as more woodworking videos are on the way. The only
    focus is to share woodworking experience & skills with woodworkers like
    yourself. Thank you for subscribing to this channel. Dar o meu melhor para
    nossos companheiros marceneiros em Portugal. Bob

  24. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Once the band saw sled is built the fun begins. Take some wood from the
    scrap bin and make some test cuts. Play with it and let your imagination &
    intuition go. Experiment & enjoy the process. Work safely.

  25. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    efrancis19… Thank you. Take your time and enjoy the process. You will
    find it enjoyable.

  26. Xavier Ventura says:

    I can do that.

  27. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:

    Cosmas, Thank you. Yes, the mitre sled must be at the exact angle. However,
    that only takes a few minutes to perform. A digital angle gauge works very
    well to obtain the angle when setting the fence. Also plastic drafting
    squares with the appropriate angle can be used also. There are videos on my
    YouTube woodworking channel that show exactly how the band saw sled is
    built and also how the angles for the fence are obtained. please watch for
    more information. Thanks for watching & commenting.

  28. Heitor Alves says:

    as all your videos, amazing work :) no need for fancy words or sponsors.
    Keep up, i’ve learn alot with your videos. Thank you a million times :)

    n8guy, Yep, these are cool designs. It is known as Sacred Geometry. Great
    question! Yes, the compass rose block can be made higher. This would allow
    for more veneers to be maximized from a single block. Another set of 2
    sleds are used in that operation. The benefit of showing the method used in
    the video is…more people can grasp this woodworking method. It is a good
    & basic foundation from which many woodworkers can learn the process. Cut
    the segments, glue them, & cut veneers. Thanks!

  31. james rowlands says:

  32. Andrew Ackley says:

  33. The Apprentice and The Journeyman says:
