  1. Golden Eagle

    I'm still making Christmas gifts. This one is for my Grandson who is a freshman at Mountain Vista HS They are the GOLDEN EAGLES. That is their emblem in the center. I used quarter inch ply. There are 3 layers. I painted the mountains on the back piece, added the black background and then the golden color layer. I was puzzled as what color to paint the background. Then it dawned on me, the name of the school, so not mountains? You can see the MV on the eagle too.
  2. Unbelievable

    It is animated, still fantastic.
  3. Unbelievable

    I thought about that too. Maybe I'll research it and find out
  4. chopping block bowl

    This is truly a magnificent bowl, there is so much waste of wood. I saw a video where a guy used a curved cutter to remove and save the center wood to make smaller bowls.
  5. Box

    I made a new miter sled for my table saw and it turned out good. When I was testing it, I used some old scraps from my last projects. I looked it over and thought, "thats beautiful wood, what can I make out of it." I laminated some of the Canary wood and added some other scraps, I think Bubinga. I sat it on the kitchen table and my daughter stopped by for a visit. Yep, you know what happened to it
  6. My Shop

    Wonderful organization, I sure envy all the room you have. Great, just great.
  7. Sign

    I drive by this sign often, located on Littleton st. I still smile when I see it
  8. Amazing video

    It take a few minutes to watch, but it is amazing the skill and engineering that went into these projects
  9. Cat

    I walked by the cat and thought.........he needs whiskers. So I used round toothpicks and gave his some whiskers.
  10. Cat

    I am into making Christmas presents for my family. My daughter loves cats and I came up with this idea. I have made a parrot and stylish bird so far. For my Christmas present, she sent me 2 boxes of wood. One was mostly firewood, but the other contained some nice pieces. The background wood is White Limba (never heard of that one) The cat head is Canary wood, The eyes are Ebony surrounded by Osage Orange. It is about 9x11
  11. when do you know when to quit piddling on it?

    If I've been on a project for a while, I sit it off to one side in a location where I can still see it as I walk by. It really helps. Then one day I will pass it and a new idea pops in my head, "It needs another detail" and I am back in the groove again with new thoughts.
  12. Indexing jig

    It made into the teeth inside the pulley for his notched belt
  13. Question for the group re: threads in wood

    Many years ago my wife wanted a small quilt rack. I looked at some and created my own. I threaded the Oak at every connection and put big spinner type handles for easy tightening. It worked really well. I put spreaders on each side of the quilt and made a tools holder too. Threading wasn't too difficult, do it carefully and slowly
