Ah, Jordan! We should have such clients!

I’m sure he will be pleased in the extreme.

Just a word, if I may, – - -

Buy some clamps!

That’s for sure Don – LOL! You may think I’m the wizard of wood however I have no clue what I’m doing! I still don’t know how to use my joiner that I’ve had for 15 year(everything ends up narrower at one end), I use dinky little hand clamps and a tie down to laminate, all of my wood, I cut with a bandsaw I won in a contest and just pray it cuts straight and to tell you the truth, everything I create is by the seat of my pants! But hey, I get the job done and somehow they turn out. Why do you think I came to lumberjocks – to get advice from you experts! Thanks guys, please stay tuned for the days I’m crying, haha. Send clamps!

Jordan,
You ARE the wizard of wood, just not a mechanical wizard.
We’ll be glad to help.
Ask away!

Jordan, It doesn’t matter if you know what you are doing or not, just keep doing it.

I will be waiting to see the pieces as they are completed. I am confident that they will be “works of art”, just as your last pieces were.!!!!!!!
