I’ve said this before, but when I make cutting boards, I like to use a cheap plane (not this one) to shave the glue drips flush to save my planer blades some work. They’ll get enough of a workout on this maple, it’s hard as a rock! I took one decent shaving with the Stanley No.4. I’ve got a number 5 on my list. Lots to learn about hand tools, but one thing that seems clear is the 4’s angle is too high for figured hard maple. Lots of chatter. I’m sure the blade could use a honing too. Definitely operator error is a huge factor too.

Shoutout to the DIY wire jewelry makers. This stuff takes talent and a lot of patience, neither of which I possess in abundance. I’m going to stick with jump rings.

First batch out of the clamps, next batch in! I only have enough pipe clamps for 4 boards at a time, but that’s ok. It helps me perfect my #workshopshuffle and project flow. All 8 will be ready for the planer early next week.

8 cutting boards in 2 styles custom made for and only available at @valentesnj
Both are 9×12, on the left is walnut with a zebrawood core flanked by hard maple. On the right is a fancy looking maple with a walnut core and yellowheart highlights. Still a long way to go, but if these are looking this good now, just wait till the oil hits them. 😃

Taking a note 🎧 from @kjsawdust with some #shopsounds ! Turn your sound on for some protective coating peel and the crisp snap of a perfectly fitting lid and miter joint. Music to my ears 👂🏻❤️

Sorry for the lighting in this picture, I have lamp clipped to the shelf above the belt sander. It’s a great work light but terrible for photography. Makes the walnut look orange.
Anyway, started a new cake knife commission yesterday and here’s how it’s taking shape so far. Walnut chef’s blade with a spalted sycamore handle. This was my last set of spalted sycamore grips. Gotta find some more, it was by far the most popular grip selection.

The pasta display boxes are really coming together now! Plexiglass installed along with the slider pull/trim. The best part is yet to come when I get to peel off all this protective plastic. (#shopsounds ) I’ll save some for @cgb0720 since she loves it as much as I do #oddlysatisfying
Actually I think the best part will be getting them off my tablesaw so I can continue work on the cutting boards exclusively built for sale at @valentesnj

#stateoftheshopsaturday mess as usual. I put the final coat of oil on the pasta boxes yesterday so this morning I am gluing on the “handle” to the sliding plexiglass lids and trying not to get my coffee mixed up 😝
Locktite ultragel control super glue is my go-to adhesive for this kind of work. The glue is thick and comes out in a tiny bead, doesn’t run like usual CA glue. The bottle has 2 squeeze points making it syringe-accurate too. Sets in minutes. #thejawnshop approved! 👍🏻

If you’ve been following along, you know I can’t just have one project going at a time. Life is too short for only sequential processes!
These are a bunch of cufflinks I started a while back and have been sanding away at in between jobs. Finally getting to the finishing steps now. From left to right are Jatoba, bocote, zebrawood and purpleheart. Some of these will join the tie bars to make matched sets, others will be available a la carte. I’ve been trying to build up a decent inventory of these smaller items for farm market season. I only made it to one @marketoffcentre last year and I’m hoping to do a few more this season.

Sanded these cake knives all the way to 320 then realized I forgot to raise the grain 🙄
Oh well, at least I get a nice picture out of it 👌🏻
The chef’s knives on the ends are claimed, but the santoku’s in the middle are available. DM me if you’re interested, they make great wedding (shower) gifts!
