Test Yosegi block turned out fine.

This past weekend, I started a live edge cherry log guest book for some friends getting married later this year. Over the weekend, I selected a choice log from the firewood pile, stripped it’s bark and gave it an insect eviction treatment (just in case).
While that was finishing up, today I started the interior. After watching a few book binding videos, I decided I was probably competent enough to give it a shot. Progress results are pictured. Not bad for a first attempt! It felt super nerdy to make my own book. It was tedious and repetitive (as I always find sewing to be), but it was not terribly difficult. Actually easier than sewing cloth since the holes are pre-punched.
After the spine has been glued, I’ll add the end pages out of ivory card stock, then the pages will be trimmed flush on the tablesaw. YouTube crafters probably don’t have access to that kind of machinery, but I sure don’t have the time or patience to cut each page flush with an exacto knife.
Since there will be days in between where glue is setting, I plan to switch back and forth from live edge log work and inner book binding. Stay tuned for more, this project will be a bit extensive. Also, I’m making a story highlight in car you want a quick recap.

Here’s how the bocote tie bar and cufflinks turned out #nofilter . This is after a few coats of arm r seal to finish the job. I’d wear it 😃

Turns out, these tie bars and cufflinks with the tacky finish needed just about the same thing as I did. An afternoon outside the shop in the sun and fresh air (and a coat of arm-r-seal) and they’re ready for a finish coat.

It’s been sort of an off week in the shop. Did a lot of hustling to get ready for the farm market and some other orders that were in progress, but I’ve been feeling a bit worn out, so just working on a few odds and ends this week so I can start fresh on the next big set of orders.
I’ve been trying to finish off the latest batch of tie bars and cufflinks for Father’s Day, but this end grain bocote has been giving me issues. The finish (minwax wipe on poly, which I use all the time) wasn’t drying in. Worked great on everything else, as always, but stayed tacky on the bocote. So I’ve sanded it down a bit and switched to arm-r-seal for the finishing coats. Hopefully a different product composition works a little better with the wood. Any thoughts on what the issue may be? I didn’t have any issue with the necklaces and I haven’t found bocote to be too much different than some of the other exotics I’ve worked with (Purple Heart, canary wood, Jatoba). Kinda weird. Let me know if you’ve got a tried and true bocote finish!
In any case, once I’ve got it figured out, these will make a really nice “subtle wood fashion” set. It doesn’t scream “wooden dress wear” like the walnut or zebrawood, but once you get up close, it’s got tons of character. Kindof reminds me of someone I know 😉

Here’s a bunch of pictures of the tie bars and cufflinks. I need a better small parts picture setup. These pictures are ok as a reference, but I need some hi res close ups too. There’s a lot of detail that isn’t coming through here 😐
But trust me, they look great 😉

I’m proud to say this is far from the weirdest thing I’ve built in the shop. This is a table display for the tie bars. I’m inishing up a few last minute odds and ends before the Merchantville @marketoffcentre farm market tomorrow.
Unfortunately, the humidity stretched out the finishing times on the latest batch of tie bars and cufflinks, so those will have to wait a few more days until they’re ready (DM me if you had your eye on some. I can ship in time for Father’s Day!). But I’ll have plenty more men’s formal wear sets, women’s pendant necklaces, stud earrings, and a variety of great Fathers day gifts: coasters, cedar grill scrapers, bottle openers, cutting boards, and wine caddies. Stop by from 9-2, lots of kids activities going on too!

Second coat of finish on the latest batch of tie bars and cufflinks. Looking pretty good, but this humidity is really messing with the drying times.
Can you name all the species?
