I am going to attempt to make a kligat from scratch using info gathered from the" Kligat" thread started by @Fresno_Rob. I’ve been wanting one for a while and always thought it would be a fun little project.
I used a piece of scrap 1x8 pine from the scrap pile. I know JoeB used MDF, I chose pine because it’s easy to shape and is a more enjoyable experience for me than working with MDF.
I started by enlarging a photo of a screen used kligat until it’s center hole reached it’s known diameter of approximately 2.5 inches, I then printed it to use as a template.
I refined the lines with a marker and cut out the template, placed it on the pine and cut out the rough shape of the kligat.
Next up…I need to refine the profile with a coping saw and try to make each of the three blade sections more even with each other, then its lots and lots of shaping.
