Wood Floors in Gondolas—Board widt hs?


Bill Welch
 

Actually what I am thinking is to glue down two parallel pieces of of .100 x .100 styrene using a piece of 6-inch wood to keep these parallel. Then I would initially push then pull the wood past a razor blade secured to remove one scale inch of wood. Still trying to sort out how to secure the blade. I may build a structure from styrene to hold the blade and glue the structure into place but still allow me to change blades.

I am sure an idea will come to me in the shower.

Bill, I think sanding is better. When trying to slice real wood with a blade, the blade will tend to follow the grain. It will either dig too deeply until it eithet stalls the pushing action or cuts the strip in two diagonally, or, if the grain is running the other way, force the blade out of the wood. These are all the problems one sees when planing wood with a hand plane, but the cast iron sole of the plane prevents it. Anything you can build out of styrene will have nowhere near the rigidity of a plane,

Brings to mind a point... did you measure the stripwood? A lot of suppliers don't bother to cut "six inch" scale stripwood to an actual .069", figuring .0625" is close enough.

Bill,

There is a cutter made for foam core board which you may be able to adapt for use with strip wood.

I have not measured it but thank you for the reminder to do so Dennis as it may be undersized just enough. In all honesty I am leaning away from sanding because I am so bad at it.

Regarding stabilizing the blade, I know it is hard to picture w/o a picture but I am thinking that I would actually sort of sink the edge of the blade into the base I will create so it cannot move. Whatever I do I promise Rube Goldberg would be proud.

Bill,
Perhaps this tool from Micro-Mark may be of some interest to you.

Yes, a friend sent me message about a similar if not identical tool from Micro-Mark.
