« Part 1: . Part 2 of Let's Build a Jewelry Box series Part 3: How do we fit and make the Lid? »

”Dreams are made possible if you try.” …Terry Fox

This episode is part of the Let's Build Series

Woodworking Tips and Techniques:

1.) Using blue adhesive tape to aid the gluing process.
2.) Using Ulmia spring clamps for assembly and fitting of miter joints.
3.) Cutting perfect miter joints on the table saw using the Dedicated Miter Sled.

In Part 3 we are back in the woodworking shop as we continue our build of the Koa wood veneer jewelry box. We have previously fit the components together during a dry run so it is now time to apply yellow glue to the miter joints. First though we need to tape the walls of the wooden box with blue tape. This will act as a hinge as it will allow us to spread the glue into the open miters and then swing the walls to close the joints. Also, when you only have two hands the blue tape greatly simplifies the task.

Thank you, Bob… Looking good…

Where did you get those handy spring clips?
I just order some from Hartville.
They sure look easy and good to use!

Thank you.

Joe…I’ve had my Ulmia spring clamps for over 30 years and they are worth their weight in gold. They are easy to work with and do a great job. Here’s the best link to buy the Ulmia spring clamps. Scroll down to find them towards the bottom.
You’re very welcome!

How much of a mark, if any, do the spring clamps leave?

By the way, great Series!

Blair…This is a very good question that you raise. These spring clamps have fairly sharp points, however there were no marks left in the Koa. (veneers or solid) The only time I can think of any marks left for the time I’ve used them would be perhaps on a miter join glue-up of clear pine moulding that is easily sanded away. Basically, marks with these spring clamps have not been an issue. (at first they may seem expensive…for me they are worth every penny.)

Thanks for your support!
