Everybody wants to know how to make it in particular. Obviously, the center tulip part and I'm going to show you right now. You really only need two things to do it. You need a handsaw with at least 10 inches in height cutting capacity, and you need six two by twelves glued together, 14 inches high. I've got my pattern drawn on two sides, which is the key and really the whole idea behind cutting. This is the same as cutting a Cabrio leg. So right now we're going to cut one side and then we'll come back, see what it looks like and explain what we do from there so stay tuned after I make this, make sure you keep this piece.
On the blank on one side, I'm gonna take the pieces that I just cut off and I'm going to tape them right back in place and then that way. Okay, when I flip it to cut this side, I'm nice and stable on the cutting surface, so I've got some gorilla tape here. Let's tape this up and make the other cut and we'll be right back so stay tuned. I've got the cut off pieces taped back on to my blank. I can see the pattern nice and I'm ready to make the cut. One thing to note when I made the first cut is: if notice I made it in one pass on both sides.
So when I was taping these back on, they were solid pieces that I was taping back on. If you make each cut say in like three or four sections and you have to tape back on three to four sections, it becomes that much harder to make this second cut and tape. Everything backs up because when I start making this cut, it's going to want to give away a little bit and come apart. So if you can do it on one pass, it's your best shot to keep everything nice and stable through the final cut.
