Hi everybody,
I've been a hobbyist woodworker for over 15 years, and about a year ago decided to make it my profession. My specialty is custom designed pieces, from a small (i.e. jewelry boxes) to a medium scale (bookcases, coffee tables).

I kind of mix tradition with the modern when it comes to my techniques: I use traditional joints over screws & buscuits, but I've never even attempted hand-cut dovetails. I occasionally hand-rub finishes but I like the speed of my HVLP sprayer.

The other thing that makes my work unique is I use almost exclusively FSC certified lumber, and water-based, low-VOC finishes.

You can see some of my work at www.livingforestdesigns.com
I'd welcome any feedback or constructive criticism of my work. I look forward to learning from the other users here and offering what tidbits I can.

Jon Gordon

Octagon segments

Hi there,
I can't find where to start new posts so maybe I am in the wrong department.
My question is what is the best way to cut segments and glue up a octagon say 8" dia I need to make a clock gear and can't seem to find any suitable wood. thickness is 3/8 (10mm) Baltic Birch is not available here.
Thanks
All the best
