Turning Archive 2006
>I'm making letter knife. After I turn the handle and taper the blade on the lathe, I'll cut a flat blade out of the tapered section on the band saw and sand it to its final dimensions. The stock has the grain running parallel to the long axis.
Is there an optimal way to cut the blade, relative to the grain. Both looks and strength are a concideration.
