[Legebla en Esperanto] [Above] Typical example of Mother Necessity. I needed a way to glue up a small live-edge picture frame plus 5 of it’s sisters sometime down the line. The live edge made it impossible to use a strap clamp or even a rubber band. So after thinking about it, I came up with this ‘simple’ clamping jig. It consists of a pair of cross pieces, the height and width of which match the height and width of the intended frame size. The four cut out corners of...
Somewhere in this jumble of clamps you will see a small live edge picture frame. I think I’ll be making a jig to clamp these as have 5 more to make.
Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I’ll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the finished project here. I don’t have a shot of the small Cocobolo board I was given that inspired this table before I started cutting it up but it was a couple of board feet. There was a lovely rich heartwood section d...
I made this mirror frame by cutting the prices to 8 3/4 in and making a 45 degree cut. Then I carefully drilled holes into the back to connect all the pieces. Some issues I came across are the ingraver was down so I had to use a sticker process. Then next, I had to fix the angles to make all them fit together. If I were to do something different I would use a stain and probably sand the angles down better. Lastly, something I have learned was how to route a frame from the inside and also ...

Time for another update on the mini hand tool cabinet. These may start to come less frequently, since I am now involved in multiple Christmas Time projects as well (all of which I will post either in the Blog or at the very least in the Projects area early on in the new year). With all of the cabinet sides made, the next step I took was to make the panels for the back and for the door. My original plan was to find some 1/4” plywood for the panels, but I was enjoying using solid pine ...
Another house project. We’ve wanted to frame a large piece of my daughter’s artwork. The cost of frames is a bit higher than me making one out of an old drawer front found on the curb. I’ll be doing the matting as well—a new skill to be acquired!
