The puzzle boxes, waiting for me to have the courage for the final glue-up. Once that is done, if I haven’t tuned the mechanism right, they could get jammed shut. I better check a few dozen more times beforehand. At least then I can get it the point where I can remove the blue tape (@bornjesse) and see the Yosegi in its full glory. #woodenpuzzle #woodwork #woodworking #puzzlebox #trickbox #borromeanrings #weavepattern #checkerboardpattern #kikkou #yosegizaiku #yosegi #handmade #handmadepuzzle #wip #imadethis (at Silver Spring, Maryland)

Test Yosegi block turned out fine. Already started work on the next round of patterns: multi-color checkerboards. #woodworking #woodwork #wooden #yosegi #yosegizaiku #trueyosegi #intricate #precision #detailed #geometricart #geometric #weave #weavepattern #japanesestyle #handmade #handplane #kanna #allgood (at Silver Spring, Maryland)

Finally got to the next glue-up on this test Yosegi block. Started the work day on Monday ready to grab a kanna and start cleaning up the 4×4 blocks. Thought I’d give the kanna a quick sharpening. It was worse than I thought. And then I checked the dai, and it too was in bad shape. So I also checked my first kanna. One I hadn’t used since I got my Chiyozuru into service. Anyway, so that was most of my week. But now I’m happy with both of them. And also nice fresh edge on my favorite nakiri knife. #woodworking #woodwork #yosegi #yosegizaiku #weave #weavepattern #sharpening #japanese #traditionalwoodworking #thatwasalotofwork (at Silver Spring, Maryland)

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)

The Bernoulli Chest, No. 2, down to the home stretch. I’ve had the honor to have been commissioned by Jerry Slocum to make this piece. It will be permanently displayed in the Lilly Library at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.

Got a lot of the work done on this pair of Bernoulli trick chests. Now onto the puzzle boxes which make up the last drawer. #woodworking #woodwork #woodenpuzzle #trickchest #puzzlechest #chest #woodchest #tansu #puzzle #puzzles #yosegi #yosegizaiku #asanoha #asanohapattern #seigaiha #seigaihapattern #weavepattern #qbert #pinwheelpattern #pinwheel #colorful #colorfulwood #naturalcolor #geometricart #geometric #geometry #borromeanrings #pattern #tiling (at Silver Spring, Maryland)
