  1. For My Son

    Sometime last summer, my son found and remembered a saying that he found. Told me it would make a great plaque. Being that he was a paratrooper and jumped into Panama and led the French on their "end run" into Iraq during Desert Storm, I had to do something special that was just for him. This plaque is the finished project. Oh, yeh, the jump wings - - before we did our 14,500 foot jump a couple af years ago, he placed a bag in my pocket and told me to give it back to him after we jumped. In the bag was his jump wings and his comment was "I jumped with these wings and now you have jumped with my wings. The patch on the plaque are those wings. Thought it would make it very special to the both of us. Anyhow, sorry for my ramblings, here's the picture. From flying, to jumping, to fighting on the ground. Got it all covered. Merry Christmas, son.
  2. I had one about 2 decades ago and loved it then. I gave it to a girl who was moving to a large city. Eventually the lack of a carry knife just eventually got to me. So I got another. This one is an enormous improvement. The blade is like wet ice against wet ice it opens and closes so cleanly and slick. I am convinced there is some kind of bearing in there. Opening it is about as good and quick as a switchblade. I push on the little tab on the back which pushes the blade out just a scosh and the slightest flick of the wrist does the rest. It can all be one smooth movement. Closing it is similar: I just pull with a thumb on a little tab and flick the blade closed. There is a gripping serration on the back of the blade at the heel and in front where an index finger would go. It fits the hand well, I'm happy. Just gotta remember to leave it in the vehicle if police ever ask me to step out.
  3. Early Christmas

    The guy in the brown truck just dropped of an early Christmas gift from me to me. It's a Stanley Sweetheart #62. A low angle jack plane. Destined for shooting board duty, among other things. Ain't she a beauty? The wife's gift is in transit. Thought about getting a plane for her, too. Settled on a birthstone ring. Probably a good thing.
  4. I made this shop workbench for my oldest son. The structure is southern yellow pine (SYP) ripper from 2” x 8” dimensional lumber and is fabricated so that it can be disassembled. The horizontal members are attached to the side frames with 3/8” dia. bolts. The drawers sides are made from ½” birch plywood. The drawer bottoms are 1/8” hardboard. The right drawer is a double drawer. All three drawers have dovetails joints. The drawer slides are made from SYP. The bottom shelf is ½” birch plywood. The top is made from 2 pieces of ¾” MDF and 1 piece of 1/8” hardboard banded with ¾” pine. The Craftsman vise (made in USA) attachment will be such that it can be located on any corner of the top. The plans for the workbench is inspired from Shopsmith magazine issue 66, December 1989.
  5. Many years ago I surprised my wife with a couple of corner stands for Valentine's day. I sat down, drew up the plans and this is the results. I made each individually, sat one off to one side and made the other. You don't see the mistake right away and I didn't until I put them in corners. My wife didn't see it at all until I mentioned it. I still laugh when I see this
  6. lighthouse

    A few years ago, quite a few, I made a lighthouse for my sister-in-law. I designed it and looked and looked for some things to decorate it with. I was visiting Savannah Beach and a souvenir shop provided the boat, sea captain, birds. I has small socket and I installed a 220 volt bulb in 110 . I used plastic from ceiling fluorescent lights to make the lens. That has been years ago and the bulb still burns 24/7
  7. Georgia Bull dog

    I made a couple of these Georgia Bulldog plaques as Christmas gifts. They are both big fans. I made it dimensional and it has 3 layers in some places, nose and teeth. I modified it in several places and it is about 10"x8". I think they will like it
  8. Finished Falcon

    I asked for advice on making gifts that were trademarks for someone else. This is what I had in mind. My nephew is a quadriplegic and a huge Atlanta Falcons fan. I know he will love this and something he certainly doesn't have. I didn't make it exact and added some things that make it unique
  9. grandkids u got to love em

    I built this foot stool to put my feet and one day I was gone somewhere and when I came home, my granddaughter who was about 4 yrs old at the time decided its legs were cold so she remedied the poor foot stool cold legs. It took a few years to get those leggings off. Ya just can't love grandkids enough. Preston
  10. Ball and Cup Games

    I have been making ball and cup games and taking them over to the volunteers at the local Akron Children Hospital for a few years now. The volunteers pass them out to the kids that unfortunately have to spend Christmas in the hospital. I figure they can play with them even while sitting in bed. I just finished this years batch today. I will wait a few days for the finish to settle in before I take them over.
  11. Seam ripper

    I posted this a long time ago for guys and gals that sell their work. My wife sews, knits, crochets, makes quilts, etc. She kept complaining that the seam rippers she gets are hard on her hands and she asked me to make some for her. Immediately I thought of all those scraps of exotic wood I kept. The steel seam ripper part came from JO ANNs with a plastic handle. Pulling it out of the handle with pliers was easy. I drilled a hole smaller than the shaft and pushed it in my new handles. I have made them for her friends, I'm sure that if I tried to sell them, I could.
  12. Celtic knot roller

    When I made my first Celtic knot roller, the results were not as good as I liked. I didn't finish it and started again. Today in a thrift store I saw another cheese cutter and decided to use that old roller and make another one. It looks Ok for my first roller and could make a gift, I use one to make pizza dough and will try this one to see if the beveled end will make the crust easier. If not, I'll eat it anyway
  13. A friend just stopped by with a wonderful gift! This will have a special display place in the basement shop!
  14. I got a picture last night from the customer that got the Cherry Blanket Chest I made. It seems she is really happy with it and thinks she may want to stay in it for a while. That smile makes building the chest worth every bit of it. Nothing like a happy customer.
