  1. Mesquite Vase

    Mesquite wood vase from the family ranch with malachite inlay thanks to the geology professor at the local junior college. used a Robert Sorby Hollowmaster on the inside. Didn't take as much as i could from the inside so its a little heavy but still loved the hollow master.
  2. Grape Trellis ... es

    Rabbits love tender new grapevine. I only found out after I planted a Niagara and a Concord in my daughter's yard to find them gone the next day. How did no one mention this in all my years of public school? Trigonometry yes, rabbit diet … no. Which one do you think could do me more good as...

  4. Business card case

    I made this business card case for a Christmas gift this year. It's based on this design but doesn't have mitered corners. Also, instead of using electrical wire for the hinge, I used 1/8 inch brass rod. Sanding solves a multitude of errors. However, I was impatient in my progression of grits...

    I like my new Sorby Sandmaster, but the hook-and-loop discs go for $6.59/10pk for 60-grit, whether through Rockler, or Amazon. They're only 2" diameter, and I've shown already that I can go through 1 or 2 of each grit on a single piece - anywhere from 5-10 by the time I'm done. The price is just...
  7. Hand Tools
    Hello All, I don't know about any of you, but I run across lots of wood chisels with unfamiliar or faded (often both) maker's marks (m.m.)/trademarks. I've spent hours trying to research who made what and when and with what mark - with a lot of success - but still leaving an incomplete...

    Just curious. If money was no object, and you wanted/needed a new set of gouges, what brand would you choose. I personally would be torn between Two Cherries and Pfeil, leaning more towards the Two Cherries. Or would you piece together a set of old, used but in good shape, vintage gouges...

    Anybody tried one of these or have an opinion? Robert Sorby ProEdge Plus

    Tool gloat? Nah. But I do think I got a great deal. I won't gloat because a.) I'm too much of a nube with this particular tool to gloat over it, and b.) The guy who sold it to me was incredibly nice and knew very well that he was giving me a great deal. Or at least this is how I imagine...

    A very Robert Sorby birthday Everyone's going to hate me for this, but I just fell - not literally - into a lot of new Robert Sorby turning tools. The 18th (3 days ago) was my 32 birthday (for you programmers, that's 100000 in binary - I no longer fit in 5 bits!). Mom sent me a box of Rockler...

    Basic beginnings for a new carver... FIRST ENTRY Have been selling these deck cooler cabinets pretty well this summer. My twist is to carve on the front of them. Team logos, peoples names, company logos… etc. But my carving skills were defined by he sharpness of the Knack knife I was...
  14. Woodcarving
    Are Robert Sorby carving chisels any good? There are a bunch at an estate sale this weekend and I'm wondering if I should take the time (and money) to buy them.
  15. Woodturning
    Hi all, I bought a set of Sorby turning tools with my lathe (actually, the tools were thrown in with the lathe, but they were brand new!). It's the basic full-size set of spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouge, bowl gouge, scraping tool and parting tool. There was no skew included, but hey...
