  1. What a Guy Can Get Done After 4:30 P.M....

    Well, being pressured with leaving for the weekend. I decided today, (Thursday) I would try and make 100 craft kits… 50 Gumball "Machines" Which many of you have seen.. as well as 50 "Finger Basketball" kits. After spending an hour or two running around to various stores picking up the needed...
  2. Mountain Man Fork & Spoon

    I made these for my Mountain Man Kit. I needed something a bit more rugged than the usual utensils. I love the Beaver cause they work so hard and are a tough little creaure. We have some nearby and they built a dam and a lodgehouse too. I even swam (snorkelled) with some in the Mad River in...
  3. Wood Clamps

    Another project. I made a second one this week. It came in a kit. No wood except round handles. I did not like them so I made my own from oak. I layered oak over some dark African Rosewood scraps. The first one went well. This weeks project was more difficult as I misplace the instructions. I...

  5. Mystery wood, live edge bowl

    This is a lovely piece of "mystery wood" that I picked up after the railroad people trimmed/cut some trees along some of the tracks that run through town. I have no idea what it is so I encourage you to give your best guess. It doesn't really turn worth a crap so I'll prolly see how the rest...
  6. Fox Kits

    This was a piece that I did awhile back. The foxes are made of Walnut. The cuts are small enough that the picture gets lost in all the dark color of the Walnut. So I kept it around for awhile until I found a piece to use as a base. Even though the base is still Walnut I used the outer edge...
  7. Woodworking tools

    I purchased the kadet version of the marking knife and decided I wanted the big one i.e. Fat Boy, but wanted the challange of doing it myself so I bought the kit. I will use Blood Wood to make mine and will post the finished project in a week or so. I have to make a pen for our SVP and I need to...
  8. a few carved signs

    As far as work that is relaxing, this is it. The chinese symbols are "Peaceful Mountain" carved in Jacaranda. The 4 signs together are carved from Mango on the top and bottom and Macnut for the 2 center signs. straight forward palintino font, all I change is closing the serifs on the ends to...
  9. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    Just had a thought… For those that are trying to earn a few dollars from working the wood and since the Holiday season is approaching instead of making finished items to sell MAKE KITS. Yup, cut, drill, dado, miter or whatever then add all the loose hardware and a set of instructions and sell as...

    Kwila, Wenge and what? I picked up a bag-o-blanks from Woodcraft, 32 assorted exotic and domestic species. I was about to get a sample box, or a few small pieces and cut my own blanks, but decided that this would give me the best variety bang for the buck, and help me begin to understand wood...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I'm looking for recommendations/reviews on routers.Ii presently have an older BD that doesn't fit my table properly and takes 1/4 inch bits and has seen fair amount of use. I'm looking to upgrade since most bits are now 1/2 inch, want to cut raised panels, etc. I've been looking at...
  14. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    I know there are bunches of experienced woodworkers here who either make a living making and selling completed woodworking pieces as well as those who do similar work to supplement their main income source. My question is: Are there woodworkers whose projects for sale include kits, including...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello there. Long time forum lurker… first time real poster! Friend of mine thinks he has some disposable income and wants to get into woodworking. He wants to get into all at once instead of the old fashion way of saving pennies to get your first TS (like I just did). Once upon a time I...
