After cutting the block into thirds, time for the final glue-up. End result: a master pattern block, tanegi, from which to plane off zuku, slices of veneer. #woodworking #woodwork #yosegi #yosegizaiku #handmade #wip #howitsdone #glue #glueup (at Silver Spring, Maryland)

Master pattern block for first checkerboard pattern done. I always love this stage: a nice solid block. But now to cut it in thirds and to make the tanegi block from which I can plane off pieces of veneer. All in the noble pursuit of making things pretty. #woodworking #woodwork #checkerboard #checkerboardpattern #yosegi #yosegizaiku #howitsmade #woodenblock #handmade #colorful #naturalcolors #precision #detailed #geometricart #geometry #square (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)

From the recent batch of small boxes, a quartet of Yellowheart and Redheart boxes.
