« Part 2: Let's Build a Jewelry Box from Koa wood veneer...Part 3 Part 3 of Let's Build a Jewelry Box series Part 4: Woodturning... the Koa Handle »

Earl Nightingale…”You become what you think about.”

This woodworking online episode is part of the Let's Build Series

Woodworking Tips and Techniques:

1.) Green adhesive tape is used to control the spread of the wood glue.
2.) The MDF is concealed by gluing a rabbeted top onto the veneered side walls.
3.) Paper shims are used against the adjustable stop block on the cross cut sled when trimming the box lid.
4.) The lid is placed directly onto the existing box to mark for cutting its width and length. (no measuring is needed.)
5.) The jewelry box lid is cut for length by using a cross cutting sled for the table saw.
6.) Bevels for the lid are cut with a sliding woodworking jig for the table saw.

In the woodworking shop we continue the building of the jewelry box by preparing to glue the rabbeted top onto the wood veneered side walls. To control the spread of the yellow glue we place green tape next to the area that is to be glued. Once all the adhesive tape is in place we curl the bottom of the tape so it becomes a catch for any possible dripping glue. The next step is to spread the wood glue onto the top of the walls and also onto the bottom side of the Koa rabbeted top. When we have spread the glue we place the top in its place and adjust for the 1/16” overhang in each direction. For the purpose of clamping we set the oversized lid on top of the jewelry box and then place a few weights on this fine woodworking project.

Joe…Marketing!...While shopping at Lowes with my wife…I needed a couple of rolls of tape…so i picked Blue Tape…She asked “Why Blue Tape?” I replied “Dennisgrosen likes Blue.” She then told me that if I got tapes of different colors I would then gain more Viewers. I then thought…well, Maybe Ken or Scott or maybe Charlie would like green. So I picked up some Green Tape too.

My wife then explained that this is the reason why car manufactures have the same car in many different colors. She said people like choices. Hopefully, I can find some Purple Tape for Purplev.

OK Bob… I guess they both work equally well like the Blue tape does…

Thank you… Good luck on finding Purple! :)

Joe…Perhaps a better answer can be found …Tapes.

To me the Green and Blue worked the same and served the same purpose.

LOL :—)) thank´s Bob ..LOL

I think the coloured tape on the front page of 3m is what we use for electric sealing of cobberwire
and the reson to why I like blue painters tape is when you use it on windowglass it wont burn
to the glass of the sun and wont lieve a thing back on the surface
but your blue and green seems to bee more like paper from what I can see when you divide it
