Using the sub-wood for the main frame enables us to use just about any wood, including lesser quality or secondhand wood scraps. Facing the edges adds to the fulfilment we get from creative working, and whereas we could simply use solid wood throughout, the laminating adds greater interest to the work itself. After gluing up the main body of the frame, Paul focuses on truing up the frame and then developing the facings from the various pieces. He used the same technique for these facings as he did to make the White House pieces for the Cabinet Room back in 2009, with the idea that the techniques would be passed on to the next generation of woodworkers.
That homemade marking gauge looks great Paul! Based on the Stanley 5061, I’ve read the blog and really hoping you do a video on it in the future!
