Went to Sam's Club and bought 54 more Zebra Pens. They are usually 9 pens for $9.99 but they were on sale for $7.98 WOO-HOO! Doug, AKA Dab, sent me some shells. I love this forum as everyone is so helpful. While I waited for them to arrive I worked the pen parts of 30 pens. Got the shells drilled and polished and put 30 more pens together. Guess what the family and friends are getting for Christmas this year. I will be way ahead of the game. I did 16 and then found two more shells and now these I made with Doug's shells will make four dozen. I have a line on more shells here locally so I'm sure a lot more will be made. It does get a bit tedious.
so i have a friend who has an old 90 mm shell casing, and he asked me to turn a wooden shell for it. sure. how big? so he sent me some pics of the inner diameter and outer diameter of the casing mouth, and asked that the shell go into the casing by 2 inches, and that the exposed portion be about 10 inches long. oddly, trees don't grow in that shape and size, so i have some scrap lumber gluing up to make the right size. one big bullet coming up sometime this week. oh, if you use a vernier caliber, please get a good straight on shot of the vernier, so i can accurately read the dimension. sigh....
A while back I was ask to turn a couple of bullets for a special outdoor piece for a retired military veteran. They brought me this milk can that will be the shell casing. I have a couple of Cedar logs and thought they might hold up to the outdoors weather better than some things. This is all going to be painted to look like a shell and bullet. So I started turning and shaping the bullet part out of the cedar. This log was quite old, but was still wet on the inside as I turned it But it all came together and it slides down inside the shell casing. The casing will be filled with sand so make it heavy and keep it from turning over easily I'm not sure what caliber this will be but it is big and heavy
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
