  1. Earth globe - Globo terráqueo

    Small earth globe 1-1/4'' diameter, to be used as a keychain. The wood is hickory (pecan). I made the sphere in the lathe and then I drew the continents based on images from different angles of the Earth. Pyrography on the edges and then the interior of the continents with my home pyro (12 volt...
  2. Rare Earth magnet on jigs

    This is about using Rare Earth Magnets on Jigs. This keeps them handy as I work. They just stick to the side of my equipment/tools. The chrome finish of the magnet can be removed or scuffed by the sanding operation. You can refresh that with chrome nail polish from almost any store that sells...
  3. Information Sign Board w/ Magnetic Frames

    This is another project for the summer camp I work at. It is a sign board that displays the pictures/cell phone numbers of our 3 staff hosts on duty, it has two 8.5×11 frames for general group information/schedule, and it has a weatherproof literature box to hold our camp maps. This is one of...
  4. Earth cane

    Red Palm wood shaft, knob is ebony with inlaid silver wire. This cane was solid and hefty because of the wood selection… had a great feel to it.
  5. Carving/Intarsia Celestial Scene

    This is a piece that I made for a coworker that wanted it for his wife for Christmas. He told me that he wanted something celestial, so I went to the internet to see what I could find. I found 4 pictures of what I thought he might like. As it turned out he liked something about each one, so I...
  6. Earth Sculpture

    This was a pretty epic piece of work. :-) I came up with the image for it by hand.. lots of fussing around in Photoshop. Converted it into a 3d model based on the relief pattern and then spent way too much time in VisualMILL getting everything working "just right". Felt like it took almost as...
  7. Jointer Fence for a Special Friend

    I asked Douglas Bordner to do some photo editing for a web site I have been planning with Lee Jesberer. I e-mailed a bunch of photos and had Douglas remove the background from them. I'd tried this myself and decided I didn't have time to learn the tricks of the trade. Shortly Douglas was sending...
  8. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Take a look at these beautiful pictures of our earth.
  9. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I just received an email from my sister. She'd like to have a quilting frame. I never even heard of one until the email but found two sites for purchasing plans. Build-a-quilt and Moritz design. Does anyone have any plans or experience with these things and would be able to point me in the...
  10. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Does anyone have suggestions for a guard when cutting dadoes on a tablesaw. I was thinking of making a larger version of the plastic guard used on router tables. I mainly work on small projects where the fence can remain on the saw.
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm in the process of making a project that will utilize rare earth magnets to hold a light in place on a machine. I was wondering what type of glue to use to embed my magnets into the wood. Hopefully it's something that Walmart, Lowes, or Home Depot carries, so I don't have to order it. I...
