  2. Jewelry Shelf and Scarf rack

    I used scrap wood left over from my dining room table build. The wood comes from Wyoming snow fence that is left to age for decades before the wind takes it toll and has to be replaced. A fun project for an afternoon and a surprised wife when she got home from work. The scarf hanger is a...

  5. Scarf Hanger

    Certainly not my idea, but 100% my own design. I've seen this idea on here while ago and thought it would make a great gift. It is made of 9mm thick beech plywood with a width of 45cm. It contains 9 holes for scarfs with a diameter of 40mm. This size hole fits thin/ light scarf perfectly for...

    I am in the market for one and I have seen bits with a top mounted bearing, bottom mounted bearing and top and bottom bearings. I am considering getting a top and bottom bearing bit as it appears it can do the same job as the other two . . . but in one bit. Or should I buy separate top bearing...
