Jewellery in the Making - Part Three

With the aid of some screws to keep the components from sliding around after glue up, clamp all the pieces together.This was done in several stages to make lining up the components easier.This had to be perfectly aligned.

Finally the components become one.The male forma was made using mdf laminated and then turned on an engineering lathe.

Cutting the forma exactly in half.

Having cut the forma in half, it left the forma with a piece missing - due to the bandsaw blade cut.Glueing veneer back on to the cut edges of the forma replaces the saw cut. Finally, all that is left to do is to protect the forma from coming into contact with glue.A roll of parcel tape works well.
