I found this video on you tube for making triangular linings. It uses some simple jigs and if combined with the multiblade tablesaw approach might make them go fairly quickly.

This afternoon I decided to make some triangular linings from some poplar scrap that was once the core of a lumber core table top. I combined an idea I had from watching the video I linked above (@5:30) and the multiblade tablesaw setup I've used in the past. Rather than copy the jig for cutting the angle on the sticks exactly (where the jig is moved across the blade), I kerfed an 8 inch section to fit the sticks but left both ends open, and clamped it to the fence. I then fed the sticks through the jig, pushing the first one through with the one behind it, and so on, until all the angles were cut. Feeding them through took very little time. I then switched the set up and kerfed them. Altogether it took about an hour and a half to do 20 sticks - enough to do 5 guitar type instruments.

Anybody try CNC? Got to be a ready made program that will cut them while I go for coffee.

Not really what a CNC excels at. And I have NEVER walked away from my machine while it was running to go get coffee!

However I never thought to use table saw blades for the kerf cuts. I assumed the kerf of a table saw blade was WAY to big.

I do have a 3/32” router bit. I could try kerf cutting a wide but short board on the CNC. I would still have to rip the board into strips and then push the strips through a round over bit on a router table....

Or stop being so cheap and buy the dang things!!! My Mom’s family is Scottish, so buying is going to be hard.
