  1. Rare Earth magnet on jigs

    This is about using Rare Earth Magnets on Jigs. This keeps them handy as I work. They just stick to the side of my equipment/tools. The chrome finish of the magnet can be removed or scuffed by the sanding operation. You can refresh that with chrome nail polish from almost any store that sells...
  2. Dress up station w/video

    This past weekend was my daughters birthday. The girls have tons of dresses and dress up stuff. It was unorganized so I created this. Not only is it nice to have to hang up the dresses, but it keeps all the accessories in the bottom of the station.

  5. Filet Knife Handles

    A buddy was going on a fishing trip and asked that I make him a nice handle for this filet knife. He threw in a blade for me as a thanks, so I made two handles - one out of a really nice figured walnut and the other from birdseye maple. Unfortuantely, a lot of the birdseye was removed during...

  7. Saddle Trees

    I've wanted to write this up for some time. In the first photo is a "Saddle Tree". It is built of wood and covered with rawhide. While you can't see it this is some of the most tecnically demanding wood work in the world. Ranking right up there with the old time pattern makers.You see, the...
  8. Flying High Intarsia Wall Hanging

    After making this pattern, I showed it to a few people and really got a good response so I decided to make it. I wanted to make it with a lot of depth and the front wing has about 3/4 of in spacers behind it. The background was a challenge to make with the different wood colors and grain...

    Several years ago, Roy was talking about a sled some one had made. He said the maker really knew his woods as he used hickory or ash for the runners, something else for another part. Today on another thread about black locust, it was mentioned it is full of silica and is very hard on tools...

    I have an older 1/2 HP Craftsman floor model drill press and need a chuck key. None of the ones at the big box stores (nor even Sears store) are big enough. Is there a way to determine what size of key I need? Ordering Sears Parts replacement for $25 is out of the question. I can get a whole...
