@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!

This pile of wood might not look like a whole lot at the moment, but these are the sides of the 12 pasta display boxes v2.0 milled, planed, dadoed and mitered to their final dimensions. This coming week, I’ll sand the interior and exterior, then cut the bases, plexiglass for the slide-in lids and assemble. They’ll be finished with a butcher block oil.
Today was a serious hustle day, so no progress pictures, sorry. Just trust me when I say I was in robot efficiency batch mode, cranking out cuts on the tablesaw.

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.

I posted this a while back, but with the scrollsaw project finally starting up I wanted to show it off again. This is (what the #igwoodworkingcommunity believes to be) big leaf maple burl.
After I square the edges, I’ll be resawing and book matching it to ¼" slices, gluing it all up into a scrolling blank and cutting out the front and center small tree, which is about 6×8". Originally, I thought it would be nice to stain it faker, but I think the small tree and burl pattern out front will be a nice accent to the piece. It will darken a bit with finish anyway.

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.

Rustic Italian open/close sign update: back from the designer and the lettering is 🔥❗️
Im finishing up the frame, adding some splines then a couple layers of poly. I’m also aging some hardware in vinegar solution to match the old world feel. Should look pretty sharp!

It may be hard to tell from the picture, but this is the latest batch of cutting boards. (Some assembly required) 😂
Still a long way to go on these. Hoping to have this batch ready for @valentesnj opening day. We’re working together to bring a few favorite designs specially made with Haddonfield NJ in mind and only available at Valente’s Italian specialties. Get there early because supplies are limited!

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!
