Re: The Kohnen Scarfing Jig
Back when I was making my SOF kayak I scarfed all the stringers and gunnels from 10’ wood.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It was a bit tricky to get them with no twist. Any off squareness of the cut resulted in an eventuated twist from one piece to the next. After my table say jig didn’t work out I ended up clamping then to the bench and using a hand plane. Reading this thread I was just thinking that if the jig was made to overlap the two pieces the way they’d be in the boat -end to end, then any angular inaccuracy would cancel out.
Im a big fan of moving the smaller object, long skinny noodles of wood in a table saw is a pain. Next time I rip stringers i want to try it with the wood clamped to a long bench or saw horses, and a skill saw with a good fence.
