    My drill chucks are causing me problems by coming loose. I may be one of the few that didn't know this.

    The piece inset in the left is a scrap left over from another project. It bowed a little, but isn't causing me any grief.
    The back piece is ply, so not going to cause me issues.
    The glue lam sheets have never caused my any issues in the past
     
    It's not a wallaby trap, nor a duck blind

    My wife bought one of those bird feeder cages with suet inside. She want me to hang it in the tree. I told her the squirrels would empty it out in short order. She asked if I could fix it so that wouldn't happen. I said "sure" I had a 4 foot piece of three quarter angle iron, which I drove in the ground 5". Next I installed a 5' section of half inch slick PVC pipe in the top of the angle iron.  At the top of the pipe I put  the feeder cage. The very next day I watched as a squirrel climbed up the angle iron and proceeded up the PVC pipe like it was a ladder. So I got out my secret weapon, Teflon spray, which I sprayed on the slick PVC pipe. The very next morning Mr squirrel went up the angle iron and slid all over the place trying to climb the pipe. He finally gave up. I laughed and thought "GOTCHA" He tried several times that day and failed. The next morning I had my wife watch ole slippery Pete. We both watched as he went up the angle iron and PVC pipe like it wasn't there. Well, it did work for a day or so.
     
    I've seen several "squirrel proof" feeders, but I am not that interested in pursuing it any further. We have more squirrels this year due to a lack of hawks, owls and other predators.
     
      I can remember my father said that during the depression he and others killed, ate and canned all wild game, including squirrels. It was food for the winter. When I was young, hunting wild game for food was also a common thing to do in our area.

    I  remember New Brunswick stew being pretty good to eat, but generally speaking I'm not wildly fond of squirrel. Anway, I knwo you don't want to persue it any further, but I think if you replaced the PVC with a piece of HVAC snap lock pipe, the squirrel wouldn't be able to climb it (no need to use the spray).

    Ron Altier reacted to Smallpatch in Starting a new?   
    And I am starting with the little things that normally is the last things I add to a project to give a person more things to look at in case the main object was poorly made to start with and that maybe some folks didn't like and I was hoping the small things would keep some folks to do a double take and see something interesting...
       So, I have spent the last three days  making flowers and actually tying to reproduce something like nature keeps coming up with even with no patterns or plans...
      I can see some improvement in my flower making from the first rose I made some time ago to the last one but maybe some didn't even think I was making roses and to them was just a pile of pieces of wood.
     So this project starts out backwards and I hope I don't get flubbed where I walk away from it and start something else..
    Cutting these rose petals out with the scroll saw is hard enough but I still don't have all the shapes I'm looking for. Maybe I turned these little bowels there on the top left side with the lathe and maybe I didn't but these are what I'm stacking rose petals in to and hoping they all slide in to position and don't depend on me to guide them in to place.
        I think I just heard to scroll saw start up so I better get back out there before it saws holes in my walls...

    Looks like a device to lock cable ends into a loop. This I think crimps the metal device that holds the cable loop in place.
     
    like the device in this video but hand held.

    My wife heard me complaining and said "Try one of these" and suggested I keep it in a pocket attached to my cell phone. She uses them with her sewing and crafts and likes them a lot. Its a 0.07 mm.HB #2. So far I like it and it fits nicely in a pocket attached to my phone...........if I remember to put it there.
