Q.I have some planks with a pronounced crook.The grain is beautiful and I would like to make use of the crook in a desktop design. How can I edge join the boards without loosing the crook?

A# Joining curved boards is not as hard as it may seem. You'll need a router with a 2-in. down-cut spiral bit, $ 17, and a -in. template guide bushing, $7.50, (available from Woodcraft Supply, 800-533-4482), a jigsaw and a clamping jig wide enough to hold both boards at once.

Lay out the boards in the order thc\ will be glued. Use a jigsaw to rough cut the bark edges on the first board (Board A in Photo 1). Try for a smooth flowing line that's easy for a router to follow Abrupt changes in direction will not work with this technique Overlap the second board with the rough-cut edge of the first. Scribe and cut the second board.

Once you're satisfied with the look and lit of the rough-cut edges (try for gaps under * in.), its time to make the template Scribe the edge of the first board you cut on a piece of Vi-in. MDF or particleboard that's as long as the boards you're joining and almost as wide. Cut the template profile w ith a jigsaw, then use a belt sander to smooth any irregularities. Clamp the rough-cut boards and template on a clamping jig.

Then, joint both edges at once.

To make the clamping jig in Photo 2, crosscut 2x4s equal in length to the total width of the boards you're joining. Rip a piece of plywood to that same width. Lay the 2x4s on edge across the plywood like the rungs of a ladder and secure with #8 x 2-in. screws. Make sure there's a 2x4 flush with each end of the board where holes can be drilled for clamps.

Set the gap between the twro boards so the bit takes only Vio-in. from each edge. Follow the template, remove the boards, join with clamps and glue.

You talce care of the craftsmanship. We 11 deal with the blotching and lapping.
