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.

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.

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!

Last week got nuts then we had family visiting so I took something of a break from the shop. I’m back at it now and these two pendant necklaces are on their way to dress up two fancy ladies.
On the left is end grain bocote and on the right is the ever classy black walnut. Walnut for me is like her favorite set of diamond stud earrings. Goes just as well with an evening gown as it does with a pair of jeans. 😍
If you missed the mark on mother’s day, send me a DM, I’ve got a few extra 😉

@cgb0720 looking 🔥 in spring fashions and a #thejawnshop fancy spalted sycamore pendant necklace.
Met up with some friends for lunch, then took a walk in the woods this afternoon. No shop time, but a day well spent. Hope you all enjoyed it as well!

Two cake knives complete and on their way to their respective parties. The more I make, the more I enjoy making them. Every one is my new favorite. Spalted sycamore grips with a figured maple chef’s blade and the other is a walnut chef’s blade with figured maple grip.
Like it? Want one? Got a wedding or other fancy event coming up? DM me for info.

A post shared by Jon @TheJawnShop (@thejawnshop) on

After a DIY fix on the somewhat damaged part, I’m back in business with the @ridgidpowertools OSS/belt sander. This is one of my favorite tools. Sometimes, after long days (like yesterday) I like to go out to the shop, put on my apron, eyes, ears and breathing protection (which creates a cocoon of quiet), then crank up the vacuum and grind my cares away.
I’m glad it’s back up and running and I hope we all find a more permanent solution soon.

For #tooltuesday I’d like to feature this triple threat: “the tower of suck”. After work days like today, it’s the only tool I’m comfortable operating because I know I can’t really mess anything up with it.
Here’s a quick tour of the system: Starting from the bottom, the foundation of suction is my @ridgidpowertools shop vac. I forget the specs, but it’s been working hard along side me since 2007. running just about the whole time I’m in the shop most days since I hooked up the @oneidaairsystems dust deputy and giant yellow salvage drum. This set makes the shop vac into a 2 stage particle separator. Just about every bit of dust gets stuck in the drum for continuous suction without diminished performance. To improve upon the system, I also ran a bunch of PVC pipe and hose with blast gates to hit most of the stationary tools in my shop. Adding a remote switch and keeping the keychain on my apron allows me to turn the vac on and off from wherever I am in the shop.
If you’re not working clean, do yourself a favor and get a good shopvac. Your tools, lungs, and sandpaper will last longer. If you don’t have a 2 stage system, I highly recommend getting a simple setup like this. Check the link in my bio for “tools I use”. I’ve added (or will add) links to the components in there. If you can afford a big fancy 4" 2+HP dust collector, do that. Someday I’ll have space for it, but for now, this is working great for me.

Everyone loves walnut, but man, when the oil hits that figured maple, that’s where the magic happens!
I haven’t done an oil video in a while, so here’s a 2 for 1 deal with a double glamor shot to boot. Enjoy!
