    This little guy was done by several different saws. I then took the time and by dremel, got it burnished with burrs and stones to obtain a smooth look. Torches and stained the pine piece to give an old look. Only about a foot high.

    This is a small item I make to use up scrap and provide an anti suicide message. I give these away free at craft shows to anyone who wants or needs them. Look up the semi colon initiative.

    27.5" long, it has a solid long stroke, the entire blade is usable from the start of the cut to the heel of the saw, I have two other blades with varying TPI.

    My beautiful frame saw I acquired a few months ago, I love this tool. It cuts wonderfully. Did I say it's beautiful!
    The top horizontal bar is turned to tension the blade.

    The image is upside down but the wood bar is turned to create tension on the frame for the blade, note the detailed chip carving in the recessed portion of the tension bar.

    Grandpadave52 reacted to John Morris for a gallery image, Workbench   
    I recently inherited this beautiful workbench.
    The top is 4" thick, 6.5' long by 24" wide with a tool well at the rear. The top is composed of Maple and Oak billets, there are dog holes and the original owner made his own dogs out of aluminum rounds, they work very well. The end vise is large and very powerful. The cabinet is made of oak, with oak drawers and walnut pulls.
    I will be using the bench as my primary work surface for all I do, I cannot wait to start work on it.
     
    I purchased the hold fasts from a fellow on ebay, he hand forges them and sells them at a very reasonable price. I have already tried them and they truly do hold fast!
     
    More than likely I will remove the surface mounted vise as it will be in my way, but it is a nice vise, I'll mount it elsewhere in my shop space.

    Grandpadave52 reacted to John Morris for a gallery image, 1" Infill Shoulder Plane   
    I have been blessed with a bounty of hand tools and wood these past few weeks, it's a long story, after returning from my latest trip, and after sorting through the tools, I found this infill plane among many other gems.
    It's a 1" Infill shoulder plane. At this time I cannot see any markings, the hand plane is ready to use now, the edge is excellent and the body is square and solid. I love this plane, and I'll use it.
     
    7.5" long by 3" tall, heavy with a square sole to side for accurate registration. Can't wait to use it!

    Grandpadave52 reacted to Dale Felice for a gallery image, Firefighter memorial 2. The final cause   
    The Dickman family was very happy to pose  with a part of the memorial as they lost a loved one doing his job. It to me was one point during my horrid day that someone got  a bit of closure. I will be traveling to Indiana  in May to work with Steve Gore and also do a meet and greet at the Indianapolis  500. @Ron Dudelston.... I'm heading out may 25th I think.

    this is just off the CNC table.   I was playing with using some frames I had in the studio and wanted to mount carvings instead of paintings.  wanted the carvings to come outside the frame.
