  1. Here is my weekend projet. It was from the video Stick suggested last week. I made a mock up, to see if I could build one. See picture. Now I will make a working model. Herb
  2. Here is the final product of the Ipad/Tablet holders. The little one is made from left overs. Herb
  3. Just made some IPAD,TABLET,Clip Board holders. Walnut Spalted Alder, spray shellac finish. They are a little large. didn't know the size of the devices as I don't use them. 9X12, tilted @20 degrees. I am working on some smaller ones now. Herb
  4. Here is the desktop clock and a wall clock I just finished. Herb
  5. Well the holly wood planter is finished, and came out fairly well. Best I could do with what wood I had. Started with rough, warped boards, tried to make them presentable. Herb
  6. I got tired of seeing the plain back on the Drumsander cabinet and I had this first attempt at Marquetry reject laying around ,so decorated the back of the cabinet. Here is the before and after. Herb
  7. I am really scratching my head on this one. I was given a box of wood,and told to see what I could build out of this. It is a real challenge. Apparently the owner Had cut down an ornamental shrub, maybe a Holly bush, and cut it in firewood length,then decided to resaw it into boards some time ago. He cut it green and sprayed/ painted it with paraffin wax and stored it away in his shop dark corner and forgot about it. When he passed away awhile back, his widow gave it to me and asked for me to please makes something out of Al's wood for her. What do you think Guys? Herb
  8. Today I tried the sawzall and it works really good on 3/4" plywood . I found the saw has a variable speed trigger. Uses the same blades as the Milwaukee. The only problem I found was with the blade shoe. It has a pin that pulls out to shift the shoe from straight up and down to forward or back. the pin pushes in to lock and pulls out to release. Well the vibration of the blade causes it to push out ,thus letting the shoe to move to the back and forward positions. I might have to replace with a small bolt and wingnut to lock it in place. No biggy. I do like the quick change feature of the blade, I can easily remove the blade before I put the saw back into the bag. It has lots of power,cut right along in that plywood. Kind of like no cord to fight. Can't tell the difference from a corded one for cutting. I tried the circular saw on a piece of western maple Ruff 1 X 8 and it quit half way through the cut,weak battery. It was the same one I had on the sawzall , right out of the kit. So I put it on to charge and put the other battery that came with the tools and it walked right through the board and I cut the other end no problem. The blade that came with it was a Ridgid blade, gave a very nice smooth no tear out cut. it is a 7 1/2" X 5/8" arbor hole, which is standard, uses a 3/16" allen wrench to tighten arbor bolt, the allen wrench stores onboard saw. To operate the saw there is a Safety switch that has to be depress and then the trigger works. I can let go of the safety switch while the saw is running unlike some saws where you have to depress the safety switch and the trigger both all the time which is quite awkward. This is better but I still don't like this feature, and from my 45 years of using one for a living think that it is unnecessary. Herb
  9. Thanks Fred, I love that 5 piece set of Ridgid Cordless tools. My cousin Paul was thinking about ordering the set and came pver the morning to see how they perform. We ran them through their paces on a piece of 4/4 dry maple, which was fairly hard. 1. Drilled a 1 1/2" hole through the board,no problem. cut like butter. 2. Drilled a 2 1/4" hole , cut real good,caught one time and about twisted off my wrist. Made it all the way til the pilot was through and stopped, my wrist wouldn't take another grab. 3. Crosscut with circular saw, couldn't even tell it was cutting so smooth. very smooth,no tear out cut. 4. Did a rip full depth blade, free hand, didn't phase it one bit, cut smooth no bogging down or stopping, cut straight as an arrow. I did not notice any sawdust in my face either. 5. Cross cut end with the Reciprocating saw , cut nice and square, cut better at slow speed with this particular blade, than at high speed. 6. Drove some some exterior screws with star driver bit. Went in like butter, no resistance at all, the driver would have walked them through the board if I wanted to. I am a happy camper with this set, it will do any thing I want to do, my cousin just called and said that they are now $100. more than what I paid for them.

    Colored Woods

    Someone sent me this article about the woods changing colors over time. http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/preventing-color-changes-in-exotic-woods/ for some reason it has to be copy/paste to see. Herb
  11. Here are some Christmas presents I made for the relatives. The first pictures are the seven day clocks in a 7 sided polygon, the rest are in a 14 sided polygon. also included is a Peruvian walnut napkin holder. I used some different hands on some of them. Herb
  12. You guys might have already seen this, but I will post it for those that haven't, at the end ther are some beautiful bowls. http://www.hobbithouseinc.com/personal/woodpics/box elder.htm Herb
  13. At least he is wearing his eye protection and ear muffs. Herb
  14. Here is a new combination tool. http://www.bridgecitytools.com/default/ug-1-universal-gage.html Herb
  15. This is not my kind of wood working, but a nephew of one of our WW club members sent this to her and she passed it on to me. I will pass it on to you guys /gals as an example of what can be done with a minimum of tools and scraps of wood, and a huge imagination. Not sure where this person lives, but have a hunch it is in another country. It is sort of long, and when I started it I was only going to watch snippets,but ened up watching the whole thing. Herb
  16. Here is the first attempt at the 7-day clock, this is the mock-up for the real thing ,this one is made of a cedar stud. what do you think? is the face OK? is there too much white around the face? Does the black hand look too clunky? Should it be a different color hand? Herb
  17. I found out about this MiterSet jig on another forum and had to get one. https://miterset.myshopify.com/pages/demo?AFF=41 Yesterday I tried it out and wish I would have had one years ago. It took me seconds to set the miter gauge and 5 minute max to cut and glue up a 7 sided polygon. There are formulas on the web if you know the radius they will calculate the length of the sides of any regular polygon. I worked in metric, it is easier to set up for say a 3.462" side by setting the stops on the table saw at 8.793 cm. https://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/geometry-plane/polygon.php Don't worry about a "T" slot miter gauge as the MiterSet goes in the middle, it worked for my craftsman, Bosch "T" slot, and Incre 2000 too. the slot is .733 for a shopSmith but will fit just about any miter gauge. If the bar is a little worn it can be shimmed to one side with a thin shim, no biggy. Herb
  18. I have been out fishing the last couple of days and I saw Harbor Freight stocking up for the bigge 4th of July Sale. Herb
  19. Finally got the lock plaques done. here are the last two, and all four. These were made out of some scraps of Ipe decking material that was given to me. Herb
