John asked me to provide pictures as I made one of his toys. Here is a group for the 1961 MINI Cooper he published lately. My stepson bought a new MINI this summer and I wanted to give him something. His is red with a black roof, so I made this one from mahogany and walnut. I finished is with lacquer for that glossy new car look...

Very nice looking mini.

If you don't mind, could you please tell us about the clamps you use. I've looked
 at similar clamps and never bought any. I seemed itke they were to hard to squeeze.

Found a good video about the Flex-a-Clamps. I should have had these on my Christmas wish list.

Morning Bad Bob,

I saw these at either the IWF or AWF Shows a few years back. With the adjustable jaws, they are great for varying thickness of projects. A for clamping pressure, they do apply more than adequate for toymaking. if you need a lot of pressure, do you have a good joint? I have moved some joints to close with these, but they are best for moderate pressure on a properly fitted joint.

Thanks
