First attempt at making a new Yosegi block with the Jointmaker Pro. I’m using a board I had prepared over a year ago to make a weave pattern. First step to cut a whole bunch of little perfect square sticks. I think after spending a week playing with and adjusting the JMPv2, getting some fine results. All the sticks I made have the same dimensions to within 3%. #woodworking #woodwork #jointmakerpro #jmp #handtoolthursday #yosegi #yosegizaiku #wip #weavepattern #cutting #video #howitsdone #handmade #precision (at Silver Spring, Maryland)

A wonderful way to spend a spring Friday: decorating all the drawers of the Apothecary Cabinet with a variety of my shop-made Yosegi.

Double extension drawer sliders for the Jewelry chest. Nice, smooth action, getting kind of good at these.

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!

The moment we all love, oil time. Finished sanding the charcuterie boards, oiled and ready for Christmas. Hopefully, the first of many to come!

How about an oil video to brighten your Monday? Finished the pyrography on these two spalted sycamore cake knives tonight and thought they’d be fun to show the oil transformation. There’s nothing like walnut and fresh oil! Except maybe spalted sycamore? Or this insanely figured maple?? 😍🔪👍🏻

Just in case you missed it yesterday, here’s a more wide angle view of the DIY tool lift with auto lock. If got the idea of adding this sort of lift to my workshop from @wilker_dos after she used one for a bench grinder. I didn’t want to spend the $$$ on the real lift, so I decided to try out a DIY job based on a picture.
The lift is essentially a parallelogram with bent sides to raise the tool even with the front of the cart. Easy enough looking on paper, but the challenge was thinking in 3D, figuring out which parts should and shouldn’t interact as they cross paths.
Structural integrity was also a challenge. I tend to overbuild most things, so lately I’ve been trying to minimize materials, thickness and weight from my builds. I started out with a mock up from ¼” plywood since that’s what I had laying around, but learned after a quick load test that I’d need to upgrade to ½” birch ply for additional strength and stability.
Overall, I’m very happy with the finished lift. It feels pretty good to take an idea from start to finished, working shop upgrade on the first try ?

“TURN ON SOUND !  For christmas this year we have plundered the workshop for all the tasty bits of off-cut wood from throughout the year. From these tasty bits we have made 18 one of a kind, identical in form, diverse in makeup, never to be found again versions our milked stools. We made a video about the making of these tasty stools. Here is that video!  The link in our bio is where these stools can be found. Once they are gone, they are gone. Which one will be yours yours ?…..”
