Tragic Error in Communications

The mission had been planned down to the last detail.  Every possible outcome has been considered and a solution carefully drafted for each.  The Captain knew the plan forwards and backwards.  He was ready.  His team would consist of a selection of Marines, Navy Seals, Green Berets and Jedi Knights.  The best pilot in the known universe was selected to drop them at rendezvous point Bravo Alpha Tango, a system of caves in Afghanistan, where it was rumored the enemy was hiding out.

The morning of the assault was calm, almost too calm.  There wasn’t even the vaguest hint of a breeze.  The men were briefed and the pilot was given the coordinates to the drop zone.  They went over every detail, packed their parachutes, double checked their gear and boarded the plane.  The flight was a to be a long one, all day in fact.  They would arrive late in the evening.  The Captain would be waiting at the rendezvous point.

The pilot, a consummate professional, never questioned his orders.  He followed the flight plan exactly as it had been given to him.  When they were 5 minutes out, he got on the mic and told everyone to get ready for the jump.  It would be one of the highest altitude jumps most of the men had ever taken.  The first 500 feet would be through cloud cover and then they would plummet to the earth and deploy their shoots, bringing them to the rendezvous point, where they would meet up with the Captain, who would be waiting to give them further instructions.

As with most missions, even for veterans, the pulse quickens, the mind becomes sharp and ready for action.  So it was a huge disappointment when the team landed at the county fair in Paducah Kentucky.  The tractor pull was about to  begin when the team floated into the infield, to the delight of all in the stands.  They received a standing ovation.  The men were thankful that they camouflage face paint, as it did a really nice job of hiding their anger and embarrassment.

The Captain, who hadn’t been terribly careful with the coordinates he had given the pilot, was at the rendezvous point, where he was taken out by a small band of farmers who mistook him for a goat thief.  His body was never recovered.  In truth, the military, upon learning of his blunder, never really looked for him.

Details are Important

It has been pointed out, correctly I might add, that I haven’t done a good job of explaining my processes.  This is true.  I have always been under the assumption that everything I am doing, is already known by the woodworking community.  I assumed that nobody would want the specific details of my methodology, as I am new to this, and when it comes to woodworking, a dullard.

Because I have received several requests to give more details,  I am going to try to do a better job tonight.

The task at hand, gluing up the tiny oak box.  I will be gluing sides one and two together and sides 3 and 4 together.  This worked really well last time.

  1. Step Alpha:  Affix blue tape to the inside face of side two.  (I numbered them in a clockwise order)
  2. Step Bravo:  Clamp the piece to the workbench, with a bit of wax paper underneath.  The edge of the clamp is lined up with the edge of the bevel cut.  In this instance, I have actually lined up the opposite side.  This was a case of me being way too lazy to move my camera to take the picture from the other angle.  The point is that by lining up the face of the Jet clamp with the edge, it is possible to use that face to clamp the other piece in place.
  3. Step Charlie:  After repeating step Bravo for piece 4, it is necessary to do a dry run.  Pieces 1 and 3 will be clamped in place to make sure that the joint is flush and looks fabulous.
  4. Step Delta:  Put tape onto pieces 1 and 3, to help with catching glue squeeze out.
  5. Step Echo:  Add some wood glue to piece that is not clamped yet.
  6. Step Foxtrot:  Slide piece into place and tighten clamp.
  7. Step Golf:  At this point you are finished, so you should probably grab your putter and do a little bit of practicing while you admire your glued up pieces.


That is how I glue up my tiny boxes.  The next step will be to take the glued up pieces and combine them with the bottom piece.  But that will have to wait until these are dry.  Thanks for popping in to the ole blog.  I hope that was a better description.
