    This was one of the first projects I finished after rekindling my interest in woodworking, and acquiring a shop full of tools and scraps from my Dad. These are small ear ring racks for young girls. These caught the eye of a co-worker and I later built a larger rack for the friend at work.

  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am working on a project where I have no extra material. One thing I could not afford was any planer snipe. My pieces were only about 12" long and I was concerned about snipe ruining the piece. I usually can control snipe with longer pieces, but not always. I really did not want to have any...
