Hello guys, I need a little bit of advice here. I want to carve this beautiful masterpiece of a model:
And I plan to use this beautiful masterpiece of wood (Teak wood from my country, Colombia)
The dimensions are 18" x 24" x 1.3"
I would like to use every inch of wood that I possible can, so I was thinking about using 3M VHB double sided tape instead of the clamp system that I normally use
What do you guys think? Is this a bad idea? one part of me thinks this is too risky only to gain 5cm in each axis… but other part of me thinks this could be done and it would look awesome. Any sugestion is welcome, thanks for your time.
Yes, if the stock and wasteboard are both flat, I’d use two or three long pieces of tape parallel to the Y. If you can still fit the cam clamps, there’s no harm in using them with the tape. Done correctly, the tape will hold firmly until you want it off. Done hastily, and, well…
Screwing the piece from the back to a slightly larger piece of MDF, Plywood, whatever you have could be an option. Just need to make sure your screws are in an area that won’t get carved too deep.
Clamp or bolt the 2nd piece to the table & your clamps or screws are below your work surface.
