  1. Walking Cane

    A friend of mine hurt his leg real bad when he slipped on some ice about six weeks ago. After an operation to repair the damage he has been on crutches and is now allowed to start putting weight on it and walk. I made him a cane to help him along. I'm 6'0" and a 36" cane is good for me so since he is 6"6" I made his 39" and it works well for him. Turning the long part required a steady rest. The length and thinness made it whip in the middle. For the handle I cut a tenon on the end and laminated three pieces of Cherry together for the handle. I looked at examples of handles and drew one to my liking and roughed it out on the band saw. I then took a half inch wood chisel and pared away the wood from the edges and then smoothed them out with sandpaper and applied wipe on poly for a finish. The top of the cane is 1.25" and tapers to .75" on the bottom. I found some cane tips at Walmart and they were made to press fit on a .75" shaft. Here are the finished pictures.

  3. Did a walk-about today..

    And walked downtown. I was just going to see IF anything was "new" at the usual place.....nope, same old,same old. Walked back out, spotted a second store across the street....it was OPEN? Turns out she is only open on Tuesdays, 12 - 4...my lucky day.... Asked about old tools....was shown a few sitting around....."How much for that rusty little thing?" At first, she wanted $7......nah....then it was down to $5......Ok, I gave her a dollar to hold the "prize" until I could get back...3 blocks each way, twice....whew. next time I'll DRIVE down there. Paid her the $4 she needed, and walked home with this "treasure" Handsome devil, ain't he? 1951 Dunlap, made by Sargent for Sears. A small chip off the corner..meh.. Not exactly sure what colour the handles are supposed to be.....decided to rest up a bit, before the Rehab Shop could open... Insides are a bit cleaner, even the spider stuff is gone. Colour is actually black, camera causing the blue tint.. The sole did take awhile, as did the sides.. Hardware cleaned up...nasty finish on the handles has been wire wheeled off.. Yep, those are the bolts for the handles....handles were a tad loose, so I buzzed about 3 threads off the ends of the bolts. Chipbreaker needed a bit of work t mate to the now flatten back of the iron. Honed the iron to 400 grit, called it good enough.. Gave the plane a test drive after it was put back together....and...here we go... rear view.. Looks a tad bit more like a plane? Works like one, too.. Might just do, for a 66 year old plane. Plane is a #3 size.
  4. Kururin Toy

    I had some Oak scrap and decided to make one of these walking toys. It wasn't easy, my first attempt would only walk a couple of flips, because I missed on the dimensions a bit. This effort worked ok. I used quarter 20 set screws for the weights. I also drilled the holes for it on the lathe, instead of the way the video showed. I've had trouble in the past displaying videos.........here goes stick.MOV
