  1. Some things are easier said than done in an early '50's house
  2. They work great EXCEPT in a basement shop where the furnace is located in the same room. The fan creates enough airflow that it can suck furnace fumes DOWN the chimney. Don't ask how I know this!

    Use the holes to your advantage! Turn the piece and just allow the holes to be extra added attractions!! These are NOT my turnings but an example of what can be done- http://www.healing-arts.org/edric/woodturnings-156.htm

    Reaction icons not working

    I Like It! That magnet is a great idea!
  9. That's pretty neat! I used a furnace blower motor mounted in the window. My shop is in the basement so I just removed the basement fold in window and replaced it with the blower and added some filters to keep the dirt/dust from clogging the motor.

  11. Nice cabinet! I've been riding herd on the computer technology kids for two days- I just might sleep all weekend!
  12. @Gerald Thank You! @HandyDan Thanks! I'll be checking some flea markets for a used gouge to make one, too. @Steve Krumanaker Thank You!
