  1. Rubber ball drilling jig

    As discussed in a recent thread, I needed to find a way to safely drill holes in rubber balls to put on the end of a child's drumsticks. After receiving lots of suggestions from my fellow Jocks, I ended up a) freezing the balls and b) making a rubber ball sandwich. The freezing (chest freezer...
  2. Shop table

    I found some steal engine crates from my local boat dealer for $10.00 each and thought the base would be great for something. Then the idea hit me, shop tables, you can never have too many shop tables, and these tables can double as wood storage and firewood racks for the shop stove. I love it...

    I love my scroll saw, and use it for all sorts of stuff. My primary passion is doing portraits, as they never cease to amaze me. I continue to be impressed at what can be done with just a simple piece of ply - and the hardest part (at least for me) is making the pattern so they appear...
