Position the blank with its top
against the stopblock and with
the "1" label facing up. The cut
leaves about 1/8" of material at the top.

Place the trued-up edge of the
spline against the kerf bottom.
Clamp the blank as shown. The
veneer press catches any epoxy

Make the First Cut

Kerf, glue, repeat

With the face numbered "1" up, cut a kerf through the turning blank [Photo D]. Mix up a small amount of five-minute epoxy, and glue and clamp the laminated spline blank into the kerf [Photo E]. After the epoxy cures, bandsaw away the excess spline and sand the spline flush with the faces of the blank.

Repeat this process on the remaining three faces, cutting in numerical order.
