  1. Monkey Pod on Wall Street

    (that's pod, not paw) No bad luck wishes here. Platinum and Black Titanium dress up this twist pen, with a Hawaiian flavor. Very easy to turn wood, with a little bit of tear out at the ends, and a little bit of open grain and voids that sanded smooth beautifully. -- to completely steal from my...
  2. Fathers day hexagon box

    Here is my final box for fathers day. I made this one for my wife's dad. This one took some time to get it right. I wanted it perfect as I could get any way.

  3. Monkey Pod Tri-cornered Bowl

    Tri-cornered Bowl. A woodworker buddy gifted me an extraordinary piece of Monkey Pod wood. After some struggles how to make something out of the odd sized scrap…about 8×8x11 inches. I decided to take advantage of the thickness, nearly two inches, and do a lathe project. The bowl is about 8...

  7. Monkey Pod Stump End Table

    I found this stump on the side of the road in Hawaii. Someone had dumped it on the side of Kappa Quarry Road. It's a funny story of how I got it. I pulled over to pick it up and I was there alone trying to move this 250lbs monster into the back of my suburban when out of nowhere a man...

    I haven't posted much in a while.. i've been really caught up in school work and cross country… The first picture includes my first vase (top left), not my first hollow form, just my first vase.

  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Just got a call from the authorized repair center for Ridgid on my EB4424 oscillating sander. Told me the motor was shot & they were told motors are on back order. It covered under warranty, but I sure hate being without it. It's not been abused & less than 1 year old. Repair guy says there's...
  13. Jigs & Fixtures
    I have been using an mdf planer sled. It is two peices of 3/4 put together for rigidity but, with long boards >72" the thing is heavy as hell and hard to manipulate. I was thinking of using a single sheet of 3/4 melamine for one instead. It would be lighter. Removal for the hot glued wedges...
